The Novodnistrovsk City Council officially appealed to the top officials of the state and law enforcement agencies with a request to resolve the situation prevailing in the village of Lomachyntsi in the Lomachyntsi Starosta District No.1 of the Novodnistrovska AH.
“In the village of Lomachyntsi, the leadership of the Sokyryany Rayon, that from the very beginning of the administrative-territorial reform implementation has been opposing hromadas’ amalgamation, artificially creates a situation of dual power that causes a tense and dangerous public confrontation, which, unfortunately, is accompanied not only by threats, but also physical harassment,” the statement reads.
In its appeal the Novodnistrovsk City Council requests the higher authorities “to take measures to prevent violations committed by persons, who unlawfully introduce themselves as deputies of the council, which for more than a month cannot have legitimate powers, and to take all legal measures to prevent actions aimed at forcible change, or the overthrow of the constitutional order and administration procedure set by the Constitution and laws of Ukraine, as well as unauthorised assigning of powers by an organised group of persons, which is combined with threats of mass riots, destruction of administrative buildings and committing violence against local self-government officials.”
It should be mentioned that the Lomachyntsi village council joined Novodnistrovsk in September this year. Pursuant to the law, extraordinary local elections in hromadas accessing to cities of oblast significance are not held, and the heads of accessed hromadas automatically become the acting starostas.
