The decentralization process which was launched three years ago has
already enabled local budgets to possess sufficient resources, at the same time
has given responsibilities to local authorities that should effectively use
tools offered by the Government. This
was stated by Prime Minister of Ukraine Volodymyr Groysman during his trip to Vinnytsia where on May 20 solemn events on the occasion of
10th anniversary of Europe Day took place.
"I know a lot of examples where decentralization reform is being implemented
however results are not achieved, said the Prime Minister. Local authorities should be responsible for
this process. Not to this end we launched the decentralization process so that
local governance didn't do anything at all, and there are such cases. However,
where is the owner, where is a blueprint concerning the development of society,
there will be a result. Vinnytsia has showed such
result,” noted the Prime Minister.
He emphasized that the time has come to get rid of the populists in
politics at all levels. "We have to show the populists that they are
unwelcomed guests in politics, said Volodymyr Groysman. – It's time for
responsible politicians. All necessary opportunities exist in our country aimed
to achieve this target”.
