"We see a significant increase in awareness of the decentralization reform. Now only 18% of Ukrainians have heard nothing about it. A year ago the share of such people was 30%. Other citizens are either well aware of it (20%) or at least have heard something about it (62%)," Sydorchuk said.

He clarified that a year ago those figures were, respectively, 12% and 54%. The residents of southern Ukraine (69%) are the least informed about the reform, while the residents of central Ukraine are the most informed ones (87%).

According to him, the support for the decentralization reform has also increased.

"The vast majority of Ukrainians (42%) support the reform of decentralization, while 27% of Ukrainian citizens do not support it. This proportion has somewhat improved over the year," Sydorchuk said. Last year, these figures were, respectively, 43% and 32%.

At the same time, he said that the majority of Ukrainians still did not feel any changes from the increase in local budgets.
