Decentralisation will for sure continue, – Oleksiy Honcharuk

Prime Minister of Ukraine Oleksiy Honcharuk discussed hromadas’ problems with representatives of the Association of Ukrainian Cities.


“Quality of life of Ukrainians depends on effective cooperation between the Government and local authorities. A person does not care from which pocket the solution of his problems will be financed. We are in the same boat and we have to solve people’s problems together,” said Oleksiy Honcahruk.

He added that the Government is open to cooperation and that meetings with representatives of territorial hromadas will be held on an ongoing basis. The Head of Government does not rule out the creation of a special support service to be addressed by people with not only specific questions but also suggestions.

“Decentralisation reform will for sure continue! And within it, hromadas will be given more powers,” the Prime Minister stressed.

Oleksiy Honcharuk also informed the mayors about the strategic directions of the Government's activity. In particular, the work on creation of a functional infrastructure network across Ukraine is currently underway.

"What is a Functional Network? It is an educational, medical, security network, and justice. Our Government's Action Programme has clear standards that the state will guarantee to Ukrainians – the ambulance should arrive in 10 minutes in the city, the doctor should be located no more than 7 km away in the countryside, every child should go to kindergarten and so on. We have collected information from the ministries on the facilities belonging to these networks and have put this data on the infrastructure map. It now has over 110,000 facilities nationwide. Last week, we sent this map to the oblasts for them to add all the infrastructure that is missing: places where a school, a kindergarten and a hospital are needed,” said the Prime Minister.
