President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelenskyy stated that he was initiating a bill on the economic passport of a Ukrainian, according to which the fee for the use of subsoil would be accumulated on the personal accounts of children of Ukrainian citizens.
In his address to the Verkhovna Rada on Ukraine's internal and external situation, the President thanked the deputies for voting on October 30 for a very important tax law that increases the fee for the use of Ukraine's natural resources, which belong to every citizen.
"We will direct these funds to our children. Therefore, by December 10 this year, for the first time in the history of our independence, I will submit (to the Verkhovna Rada - ed.) a bill on the economic passport of Ukrainians. According to it, these funds - the fee for the use of our Ukrainian subsoil - will be accumulated on the personal accounts of children of Ukrainian citizens," Volodymyr Zelenskyy said.
As the President explained, after reaching the age of majority, children will be able to use these savings to get an education in Ukraine or buy their own housing.
"Thanks to these two laws, our oligarchs will finally become real investors in the future of our children. Congratulations to them. And this will also be the first time during the years of independence of our state," he stressed.
Volodymyr Zelenskyy also noted that the Ukrainian Dream program will be launched soon, according to which every citizen who pays taxes honestly will be able to get a loan at a rate of 5% in hryvnia to buy real estate, an electric car, get an education or change profession.
