Kyiv and Wrocław agreed on bilateral cooperation


On March 15, Kyiv signed an agreement on cooperation with the Polish city of Wrocław.

This was announced by Vitaliy Klitschko, Mayor of Kyiv.

“Today, at an online meeting, I thanked the Mayor of Wrocław, Jacek Sutryk, for all the help the authorities and community of his city have provided to the Ukrainian capital. For their support of Kyiv, humanitarian and economic aid. Since the beginning of the large-scale invasion of Russia, Wrocław has received 150,000 Ukrainian refugees, including 80,000 children. Ukrainian children also went to Wrocław for rehabilitation in the summer,” wrote Vitaliy Klitschko on his social media page.

According to him, the cities will continue their economic and cultural cooperation and will cooperate on the restoration of the infrastructure of Kyiv and Ukraine in the future.

Decentralization reminds that municipalities of Ukraine can use the International Municipal Partnership Guidelines to build communication with foreign municipalities and enter into twinning agreements. These Guidelines offer algorithms and practical advice on establishing a partnership, cases of successful partnerships, practical advice on customs clearance and accounting of various types of assistance that partners can exchange, information on how to choose partners, how to organise the work of competent professionals or division, as well as information on financing, bookkeeping and reporting and a lot of other useful information.

Based on these Guidelines, the Ministry for Development of Communities and Territories of Ukraine developed the Partnership for Recovery and Development section of the Decentralization national portal, with the support of DECIDE (Decentralisation for Improved Democratic Education), a Swiss-Ukrainian project, and the U-LEAD with Europe Programme.

These Guidelines are based on the methodology of the Council of Europe, City to City Cooperation, and developed by the Council of Europe as part of the Programme “Decentralisation and Public Administration Reform in Ukraine” at the request of the Ministry for Development of Communities and Territories of Ukraine.
