Sergii Chernov, President of the Ukrainian Association of District and Regional Councils, Chairman of Kharkiv Regional Council met with Dmytro Razumkov, Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine.

Sergii Chernov raised many issues that concern representatives of all levels of local self-government nowadays.

“Key aspects in talking to the Chairman of the Ukrainian Parliament were set out in the appeal of the Ukrainian Association of District and Regional Councils to the leadership of the state, where the point of issue was the violation of the principles of the implementation of the decentralization reform in Ukraine. 

Upon the end of the quarantine we agreed to conduct the meeting of the Consultative and Advisory Council chaired by Dmytro Razumkov,  Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine with the participation of the Chairmen of Regional and District Councils, representatives of other associations of local self-government authorities, with the involvement of people’s deputies, management of the administrative office of the President of Ukraine, government officials to review up-to-date issues of legislative support of reforms, conduct regular local elections, establish constructive communications between local self-government and government authorities on a permanent basis," Sergii Chernov, President of the Ukrainian Association of District and Regional Councils says.

He also mentioned that “nowadays the state lacks the center for holding consultations, dialogue, making agreed upon, balanced and transparent decisions. I want to believe that the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine will become such platform.”
