Omnipresence of local self-government

is the principle according to which local self-government must be implemented throughout Ukraine at all levels. This implies the absence of territories that are not subject to the jurisdiction of local self-government bodies at all levels. This is partly a general principle of the ubiquity of power that also implies the widespread use of state power.


Own powers of the community (hromada)

involve the exercise of powers solving local issues, providing services to the population (landscaping, housing and utility services, construction, administrative services, etc.). Local self-government bodies have full discretion in exercising these powers and take precedence in bearing responsibility for them with respect to residents and the state.
