The number of united territorial communities in Ukraine may double by the end of the year.

US Ambassador to Ukraine Marie Yovanovitch said this at the opening of the program Decentralization Offering Better Results and Efficiency (DOBRE) in Kyiv, an Ukrinform correspondent reports.

"This reform is very ambitious. Consolidated communities will get new powers. We expect the number of communities to double by the end of the year. As for the local self-government, it must learn how to manage resources, make decisions, develop economy, fight against corruption," Yovanovitch said.

In her opinion, the Ukrainians are open to reform, and USAID, in turn, trusts Ukraine.

"Local authorities should explain the advantages of the new reform to Ukrainians," the US Ambassador said.
