Yulia Tymoshenko believes the national budget for 2011 was drafted in the interest of corrupt and shadow structures with ties to the ruling government.

"The minister of finance called the budget of Ukraine a ‘budget of reforms’. I would call it something else – a ‘budget of systemic corruption’, which has essentially become the state ideology," Yulia Tymoshenko said at a press conference, according to the official website.

The former prime minister also pointed out that the government violated the Constitution and laws of Ukraine by not having a budget ready on time. "The government was supposed to develop and submit to the Verkhovna Rada a draft state budget for next year by September 15."

She said the BYuT-Batkivshchyna faction will provide professional comments and amendments to the government’s budget.

"The opposition government will review all revenues and expenses and analyze the budget deficit. Our team will analyze this budget in detail," she added.
