Prime Minister instructed to collect the facts of RSA’s blocking of amalgamation

On 21 November 2018 during the Governmental meeting Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman instructed MinRegion, together with all-Ukrainian associations of local self-government bodies, to prepare information on rayons, where hromadas are not amalgamating, as well as the facts of possible blocking of the reform at the rayon level.

MinRegion sent a letter to the Association of Ukrainian Cities, the Association of Rayon and Oblast Councils, Association of Village and Settlement Councils, as well as the Association of Amalgamated Hromadas, asking them to provide information on rayons with not a single AH formed so far, featuring specific facts of blocking of this process by the heads of rayon state administrations.

"We are familiar with the situation in each of 99 rayons with no AHs established. We have the facts of amalgamation blocking. By 30 November, we will summarise this information together with the specialised associations and inform the Prime Minister. We do not interfere in the process of voluntary amalgamation, but only want to make sure that it does not create artificial obstacles for the sake of personal interests,” said Vyacheslav Nehoda, First Deputy Minister of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Communal Services.

As it is known, there are already 18 rayons in Ukraine, the territory of which is completely covered by AHs, 143 rayons with 50% of the territory covered by AHs, 205 rayons with less than 50% coverage, 99 rayons with no AHs formed so far (without occupied rayons of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, the Donetsk and Luhansk Oblasts).
