100% of Ukrainians have the right to use decentralisation benefits, – Volodymyr Groysman

The advantages of the decentralisation reform – transfer of powers and financial resources to the ground – should be used by 100% of Ukrainians, because the key difference between amalgamated hromadas and the rest of the territories is the opportunity for the residents themselves to make decisions that promote development, provision of quality services, change in the quality of life, said Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman.

“What are amalgamated hromadas? These are the hromadas that have 5-7 times bigger budgets. Hromadas that can provide quality services to everyone. Now only 70% of Ukrainians enjoy the benefits of decentralisation. And there they have leadership and responsibility,” said Volodymyr Groysman.

He stressed the importance of completing the reform, completing hromadas’ amalgamation and elimination of administrations that hinder reform and people’s desire to live better.

“I know that now some people are expressing the desire to “adjust” the reform. I disagree with this. I am against any attempts to block the reform,” the Head of Government said.
