To ensure the security of citizens is among the key functions of the state. Therefore, a security service is the first and most fundamental for the citizens, and we must guarantee its qualitative provision at the level of communities. It is particularly relevant in the front-line Donetsk region, where the risk of emergencies is much higher than in any other region. This opportunity has been realized today due to the project in the framework of the decentralization reform implemented jointly with the SES, the Ministry of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Utilities of Ukraine and Donetsk Regional Military-Civil Administration.

The Vice Prime Minister, Minister for Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Utilities Hennadii Zubko emphasized during the opening of two Citizen Security Centers in Illinivska and Mykolayivska consolidated communities in the framework of a working visit to Kramatorsk. In the opening ceremony of the Centers were participating Chairman of the State Emergency Service of Ukraine Mykola Chechiotkin and Head of Donetsk Regional Military-Civil Administration Pavlo Zhebrivsky.

He informed that the Security Centers had been funded from the regional budget and budgets of the amalgamated communities. "Within the scope of decentralization, we have delegated powers to the communities, transferred the resources. In addition, the Ministry of Regional Development, Construction, Housing and Utilities together with the SES elaborated the Recommendations for the establishment of Security Centers to assist the communities. Similar Recommendations were developed to support the establishment of Centers for administrative services provision (CASP), the New Education Space and outpatient departments. Today we see the embodiment of the reform - functional Security Centers, which placed fire brigade as well as personnel of the relevant police department. Such an approach allows us to respond more effectively to the situation and provide access during 20 minutes to the site of an emergency. This is an investment in security of the community, and it results into saving human lives and retaining property", summed up Hennadii Zubko.
