"The program of decentralization in the country is a component of the Ukrainian president’s programs. This means that both the parliament, the president, and the government are working towards the delegation of authorities, the formation of a new system of government administration, where local government forms the basis,” Groysman said.

In this context, the prime minister stressed that the support of partners, especially Germany, is appropriate and valuable.

“We deeply appreciate the level of our cooperation with the German government. We are grateful to the government and directly to Chancellor Angela Merkel for the full support of Ukraine. The fact that in line with the [German] government’s decision, the special envoy on reform issues has been sent [to Ukraine] is of great importance for us,” the prime minister stress.
