On 10 July, the Government of Ukraine passed a decision to provide UAH 1.4 billion to support small towns and settlements, which shall come as part of the subsidy for measures aimed to ensure the social and economic development of selected territories (Decree of the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine No. 500-r dated 10 July 2019). This has been reported by the Association of Ukrainian Cities.

It is worth mentioning that the support to small cities was initiated by the Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman.

“There is necessity to support small cities – rayon centres and cities of rayon significance – which do not have necessary support, but need it. We initiate a law allowing small cities to receive the status of amalgamated hromadas. This gives them independence from rayons and will provide an opportunity to solve their problems until the moment of amalgamation,” said Volodymyr Groysman.

In addition, he trusted the Ministry of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Communal Services to prepare mechanisms of purpose support for small cities and cities of rayon significance.
