Prime Minister of Ukraine Arseniy Yatsenyuk requires local authorities to serve their territorial community: "It is our common objective to carry out reforms. This means that from the very top to the bottom everyone bears full responsibility to the citizens of the country", stressed the Head of Government on Wednesday, February 3rd, during the ceremony to launch rapid response service of the patrol police in Bila Tserkva in Kyiv region.

Arseniy Yatsenyuk stressed that the law enforcement reform "isn’t just one of the elements of reforming the country": "It is impossible to upgrade the militia, to turn it into the police and leave everything as it used to be".

He recalled that previous year the Government had carried out decentralization and devolved considerable financial resource from Kyiv to regions: "The funds that had been accumulated exceptionally in Kyiv were transferred to local budgets".

Arseniy Yatsenyuk appealed to the Mayor of Bila Tserkva, head of the district administration and the local authorities: "There won’t come a man from Kyiv here to repair culture, health and education facilities".

"I, as Prime Minister, have the requirement for local authorities – they should work to protect interests of their particular territorial community. They should repair schools, hospitals, streets, to rebuild infrastructure and to conduct reforms at each particular place within competence", stressed the Head of Government.

"It is our common objective to carry out reforms. This means that from the very top to the bottom everyone bears full responsibility to the citizens of the country", summed up the Prime Minister.
