Head of Government: Decentralisation reform unites Ukraine, it cannot be stopped

The decentralisation reform that started in 2014 is a key change that unites Ukraine and makes the Ukrainian regions stronger, said Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman on the air of one of the national TV channels.

He noted that in 2014 he came to work for the Government as a decentralisation ideologist. Together with experts and city mayors, the government officials managed to work out change directions and implement them.

“And the result is evident. Decentralisation has given people a boost to change. Roads, kindergartens, schools are being built and heat supply modernised in amalgamated hromadas,” said Volodymyr Groysman. “Over 7 million people living in AHs see the difference.”

But now, according to the Head of Government, someone wants to stop these changes through “shady, back-door games”. “But I will not allow it. Decentralisation is a key reform to unite Ukraine. I will continue to provide leadership in this reform,” added Volodymyr Groysman.
