The Ukrainian government intends to include in the draft state budget for 2013 funding for the government programs that were launched this year, Ukrainian Prime Minister Mykola Azarov has said.

"The budget will not be worse than this year. It provides for the principle of continuity and the continuation of the programs that are being implemented in 2012. None of the programs will be closed," he said at a meeting with representatives of the National Congress of Local Government in Kyiv on Monday.

The premier added that the government would also finance programs launched in 2010-2011.
