Sevastopol City Mayor Serhiy Kunitsyn said that the amount of funds sent to the city's budget as compensation for the stationing of the Russian Black Sea Fleet in Crimea should be tripled or quadrupled, accordign to UkrInform.

"A Cabinet of Ministers resolution says that the city of Sevastopol receives 50% of the funds being paid by Russia to Ukraine for the basing of its Black Sea fleet. This year, the Cabinet of Ministers allocated UAH 100 million to us. The fight for next year's budget is ahead. Our task is to ensure this sum is increased to UAH 370-400 million," he said on Monday.

Kunitsyn also said that the U.S. dollar exchange rate had grown last year. "I think it would be honest if everything is properly recalculated, because Russia makes payments in [foreign] currency, and it's one thing [when we get] UAH 100 million at a rate of [UAH] 4.5 [per dollar], but it's another thing [when we get the same amount] at a rate of [UAH] 7.50-8.00 [per dollar]. It's necessary to ensure that assignations are increased and the resolution is implemented. These additional [funds] could resolve social problems in Sevastopol," he said.
