The funds to finance statutory activities will be disbursed to the Bloc of Petro Poroshenko, Samopomich, People's Front, and the Radical Party.
"This is 25% of the total volume of the annual public funding. Thus, BPP will receive UAH 24,771,800, Samopomich – UAH 12,461,650, Popular Front – UAH 25,136,400, RPL -UAH 8,453,925," reads the report.
In addition, Korchak said that the NACP, in accordance with the requirements of current legislation, cannot provide the funding to the parties Batkivshchyna and the Opposition Bloc.

The Opposition Bloc party "despite its public statement on the refusal of funding, has not provided the Agency with a statement in written form,” said the head of NACP.
As UNIAN reported earlier, in October 2015, the Ukrainian Parliament adopted the law on financing of parties from the state budget.
