Termination of current transformations will make Ukraine lagging behind for years and freeze our joint development, assures Volodymyr Groysman

The termination of the transformations that are taking place in Ukraine nowadays and mostly coordinated by the Ukrainian Government will have catastrophic consequences, will make Ukraine lagging behind for years to come and keep idle our joint development, said Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman during a meeting with leading experts, political scientists and bloggers of Ukraine. The participants of the meeting discussed the current situation in Ukraine on the eve of parliamentary elections and determined the risks of further periods.

"We have triggered changes in a number of spheres of life in the country. Stopping these steps, even if there have been done two or three, will make Ukraine lagging 25 steps behind", said Volodymyr Groysman.

The Head of Government noted that one of the highest risks is the termination of the decentralisation reform, which involves hromadas' amalgamation, turning them into capable and sustainable territories. "That's why I emphasise the need to enshrine decentralisation in the Constitution! I offer to liquidate oblast administrations, leaving only social services there. I offer to create a network of prefects offices, which will have controlling and, it appears, supervisory functions", said Volodymyr Groysman.

According to him, it is necessary to renew the territorial structure of Ukraine and to complete the process of hromadas' amalgamation the next year. And in new realities to hold regular local elections. Early local elections at this stage, the Head of Government assures, will reverse the changes and bring Ukraine back in the times of centralisation and destruction of the regions.

Similar risks can be traced regarding other transformations - primarily in the economy and in the social sphere. At that, the range of crises that can arise under such conditions is too broad - from freezing relations with leading partners, mostly financial ones, to the rapid growth of tariffs and lower incomes of Ukrainians within the state.
