"Not a single party has got into contact with us," he said in an interview for the RBC Ukraine news agency.

When asked whether it is technically possible to stop the financing of the political parties now, Novikov said: "April 21 was the deadline for the parties to give up financing for all five years of their term in parliament. On that day, a law stipulating that a party may refuse funding on the quarterly basis came into force."

Earlier, the Servant of the People Party announced it would give up funds from the budget in favor of a relief fund to fight against the coronavirus.
