The newspaper said that by approving the budget, Kiev has formally met the International Monetary Fund's condition for handing over the next tranche to Ukraine.
However, the money is unlikely to improve the situation in the country, because, as a rule, it usually lands in the pockets of corrupt officials, according to Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten.
The newspaper went on to say that against the background of the catastrophic situation in the Ukrainian economy, it will be impossible to implement the budget, which, however, may allow Kiev to avoid bankruptcy and at least formally meet a condition of the IMF to provide Ukraine with the next credit tranche, worth 1.7 billion dollars.
Earlier this year, Kiev received almost 10 billion dollars from the IMF and other international investors. The goal was to improve the financial situation in the country, but little has changed since then and the level of corruption shows no sign of decreasing, the newspaper said.
In Ukraine, such loans are typically managed by regional networks, the economic model of which stipulates the delivery of foreign money to their own financial channels, Deutsche Wirtschafts Nachrichten concluded.
