Number of capable hromadas is still insufficient in Ukraine, - Vyacheslav Nehoda

The necessary number of capable hromadas, able to assume responsibility, has not yet been formed in Ukraine, informed Vyacheslav Nehoda, First Deputy Minister of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Communal Services of Ukraine, on air of Еspreso.TV during the Via Carpatia Forum.

The First Deputy Minister brought up the topic of decentralisation and formation of capable hromadas with expanded powers.

“Today, we are already talking about development. Budget issues and powers have already been resolved at the level of legislation (related to decentralisation, ed.). The problem is that we have not yet established enough number of hromadas that we call capable and that can take over these powers, resources and, most importantly, responsibility. Therefore, we must quickly form an effective local self-government base at the primary level,” said Vyacheslav Nehoda.

According to him, then development projects will be initiated in Ukrainian regions, because hromadas will have powers and resources, and will decide what to do next. The effect will be greater than when local issues are solved by high-level officials.
