Some amendments to the expenditure part of the budget for 2017 were made, according to which the funding of defense forces must be significantly increased by 63%.

At the same time the most money will be sent to the defense forces, and then to the national security forces. In addition, funding for research in this area is also planned to be increased.

The defense budget will be increased at the expense of other areas such as  education, health and agriculture. Thus, the total amount of income and expenses remains unchanged.
