The draft law "On the Principles of Administrative and Territorial Structure" approved by the Government and already registered in the Parliament, is the key out of a package of 17 bills on decentralization. Its adoption aims at simplifying mechanisms and motivating communities to amalgamate as well as strengthening their functions. In general, decentralization is a revolutionary process that changes the system of governance, financing, powers and, most importantly, responsibility.
This was stated during a round table dedicated to activities of local self-government bodies and legal framework within which they are acting. The event was chaired by Vice Prime Minister/Minister of Regional Development, Construction and Housing and Communal Services of Ukraine Hennadii Zubko.
