Over 30 cars took part in a Sunday rally “For amalgamation!” in the Zinkiv Rayon of the Poltava Oblast.
The cars, decorated with official flags and symbols of the Opishnya rural settlement, rode through the territory of village councils of Popivka, Batky and Mali Budyshcha, that can lay the foundations of the future Opishnyanska hromada. The purpose of the event was to inform hromada residents about the benefits of establishing an amalgamated hromada. The event was initiated and organised by Mykola Riznyk, deputy of the Opishnya village council. In spite of the frosty weather, the rally participants were met by many local residents. Improvised concerts and treatments were organised for them as well.
The Zinkiv Rayon is the largest in the Poltava Oblast, that is still not involved in the decentralisation reform. According to the recommendations of MinRegion, developed jointly with the Poltava Oblast State Administration, two centres of capable amalgamated hromadas were determined on the territory of the Zinkiv Rayon – the town of Zinkiv and the Opishnya rural settlement. The latter can potentially be one of the leaders in ratings of financial capability, as the oil and gas industry enterprises operate in the territory of the above-mentioned village councils.
