President writes letter to PM
Accusing Tymoshenko of insufficient financing of oncological diseases prevention
President Victor Yushchenko wrote a letter to Prime Minister Yulia Tymoshenko, according to the President`s press-office.
In his letter President drew Prime Minister`s attention to insufficient financing of oncological diseases prevention in Ukraine.
According to President`s Decree the Cabinet should have worked out and forwarded to the Verkhovna Rada a National Program of oncological diseases prevention before May 15, 2006.
By failing to do so the Government made it impossible to make proper calculation of the funds needed for the cause in 2007 and 2008 with their later inclusion into the corresponding state budgets.
“By the Charter of Paris Against Cancer our country is obliged to elaborate national political strategy of fighting the disease”, - said Victor Yushchenko in the letter.
