Daniel Popescu, Ukraine’s special advisor on decentralisation, talks about the challenges faced by Ukraine, voluntary amalgamation of hromadas, as well as what to do with hromadas not willing  to amalgamate.

As a result, the journalists outlined the most interesting moments of the discussion on the decentralisation reform in Ukraine.

Daniel Popescu: “I am still an advisor on decentralisation to Ukraine, despite the fact that I left Kyiv in June. Today, I am also engaged in administrative and electoral reforms in the countries of Europe.”
