All spending plans must be closed, and we will try to allocate the savings that will arise in the budget for the most urgent needs. Let me remind you that this year was really difficult, it was the year of the war in Ukraine and the energy crisis, so the government launched support programs for citizens, including those related to freezing prices for gas and energy.
