The document envisages increasing expenditures from 60 billion hryvnia (nearly $3 billion) in 2015 to 150 billion (over $7 billion) in 2018. Thus, the military budget will grow 2,5 times.
The strength of the Ukrainian Armed Forces has surpassed 250,000, increasing from 184,000 in early March, according to the deputy defense minister. He said earlier in June that Ukraine lacked funds to provide food and clothes for the growing army.
The increasing expenditures will scarcely have any positive effect on servicemen's salaries, housing, healthcare and other social needs, the hacker group said citing the document. The lion's share of the budget will be spent on fortification structures, mobilizations and reserve training.
CyberBerkut is a group of hackers opposed to the current government in Kiev. Since the start of the conflict in Ukraine, the group has conducted a series of high-profile hacks. It has previously reported on the details of US plans to send arms to Ukraine, released information revealing the high casualty figures among the Ukrainian Army, information about snipers on Maidan Square, and Victoria Nuland's famous "F**k the EU!" exchange with US Ambassador Geoffrey Pyatt.
