Association of Ukrainian Cities: almost two hundred economic activity centres cannot form hromadas because of lack of legislation

The Association of Ukrainian Cities supports the adoption of draft law No 6466 that will create opportunities for the joint development of cities of oblast significance and surrounding hromadas.

Association experts were involved in the elaboration of this draft law and repeatedly appealed to MPs stressing the need to adopt the law that would create new opportunities for the development of cities of oblast importance, as well as villages and settlements that could potentially amalgamate with such cities into a single hromada.

"There are about 200 cities of oblast significance in Ukraine – therefore, two hundred centres of economic activity, currently forced to stand aside from the processes of voluntary amalgamation of hromadas because of the lack of necessary legislation. And the residents of cities and villages, as well as the country’s economy, lose from it. It should not be like this. The Parliament should change the situation and adopt this law", said Oleksandr Slobozhan, executive director of the Association of Ukrainian Cities.
