    Further decentralization will become not only a success story for Ukraine but also a new upward mobility for local leaders who use the powers and resources provided by the decentralization reform to develop their territories. Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman announced this during a roundtable on the issues of local self-government reform.

    According to him, today it is necessary to enshrine in the Constitution irreversibility of the decentralization, to shape initiatives on the renewal of the administrative-territorial system and to hold local elections in 2020 on new principles.

    "As soon as we accomplish this, 2020-2025 will be one of the most successful periods of state development. This will be the process of forming a new quality of life for Ukrainians. How will it be? Look at the new, successful consolidated communities which received new financial resources, new powers. A system of real upward mobility. And we will have a new generation of leaders ", Volodymyr Groysman said.

    Volodymyr Groysman stressed that the chosen reform path will not be an easy one and he also added that local leaders have a staunchest support by the central government.
