Partnership of state and local authorities can solve any issues of regional development, - Vyacheslav Nehoda on opening of State Archives in Ternopil Oblast

The opening of the building of the State Archives in the Ternopil Oblast is symbolic. The completion of the project, launched in 1991, succeeded right now, when in the course of decentralisation the local authorities received powers and resources, became capable of solving problems accumulated over decades. For me, this is a symbol of the fact that Ukraine independent since 1991 has finally become firmly on the path of development, and capable regions and hromadas are the basis for this.

This was stated by Vyacheslav Nehoda, First Deputy Minister of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Communal Services, after the opening of the State Archives in the Ternopil Oblast.

“There were a lot of leaders at the oblast level. I had to communicate with almost all of them. I offered help and had the opportunity to do it before, but only today we managed to solve this problem. It once again confirms that large projects of regional development can be implemented jointly by the state, oblast and local authorities. Such a partnership is one of the ideas of decentralisation, launched by us in 2014”, said Vyacheslav Nehoda.

Over the past three years, more than UAH 11 million has been allocated to complete the building of the archives from the State Fund for Regional Development, with almost UAH 10 million from the local budget. During that time, important documents were kept in the premises at the monastery of Dominicans built in the 17-th century, which do not meet the requirements for storage of documents made by the National Archival Fund of Ukraine. Another part of the archival documents was found in the rented premises of the administrative building of the oblast council, not foreseen to use for the archival storage.
