The idea of ​​decentralisation is not only to transfer money to hromadas, but also to give tools so that they can earn themselves, - Volodymyr Groysman

The idea of ​​decentralisation implemented by the Government of Ukraine and recognised as one of the most successful reforms, is not only to transfer funds, but also to provide tools that allow hromadas to earn additional financial resources for their territories’ development, said Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman in an interview to “Ukraine” TV channel.

“The idea was not just to transfer money, but also transfer tools allowing to earn funds,” said Volodymyr Groysman.

He added that in 2014 – at the beginning of the reform – hromadas’ budgets amounted to UAH 70 billion, and in 2018 – to already more than UAH 270 billion. That is why people demand a change in living conditions. And now, the Head of Government believes, it is important that the tools of the reform could be mastered locally, and that professionalism and responsibility of the executives are in line with the needs of society.

Volodymyr Groysman also stressed that enshrining of decentralisation should take place at the level of the Constitution of Ukraine, so that all citizens of Ukraine could feel the benefits of the reform. At present, 70% of the population are covered by the changes. And before the local elections in 2020, all citizens should elect the leaders of capable hromadas.
