Ukraine’s largest amalgamated hromada being formed in Kharkiv Oblast

Lozova City Council supported the decision to form the Lozivska amalgamated hromada. 10 neighbouring hromadas join the city of oblast significance: the Panyutyne ueban-type settlement council and 9 other village councils of the Lozova Rayon.


The total population of the AH is 74 250 people. So far, this is the largest amalgamated hromada in Ukraine.

“The AH has a great industrial potential, because there are many enterprises in the city. And now it will acquire the agricultural potential as well. In conjunction with the opportunities provided by decentralisation in terms of additional taxes and duties, common management of property and land, it will be a new impetus in the development of this territory,” commented Serhiy Chernov, head of the Kharkiv Oblast Council, President of the Association of Rayon and Oblast Councils, at the request of decentralisation.gov.ua.

Lozova Mayor Serhiy Zelenskyi is convinced that there is a basis for the formation of a single hromada around the city in the Lozova Rayon, which, according to the Perspective Plan, will cover the entire rayon territory and will have a population of 93.5 thousand people. “The hromadas of our rayon have benefited from the law on accession of hromadas to cities of oblast significance, made their decision and applied to us with an initiative. Definitely, we did not refuse and amalgamate to work together,” he said.
