New system of district formation in Ukraine needs improvement - Nemchinov.

The new system of district formation in Ukraine needs improvement, but at the same time, it opens the way to a new administrative-territorial structure of the state.

Minister of the Cabinet of Ministers Oleh Nemchinov stated this in his video address, which he shared on Facebook.

"From now on, there will be 1,470 communities and 136 districts in Ukraine. Of course, there are no perfect systems and this system will need some generalization and improvement, but this is the way to a new page in Ukrainian history with a new administrative-territorial structure," Nemchinov said.

He has also added that "the new system of district formation in Ukraine is a new challenge for the civil service and local authorities, but they will cope with it".

As reported, the Verkhovna Rada on July 17 approved a draft resolution on the liquidation of 490 districts and creation of new ones to replace them.

The Cabinet of Ministers at its meeting on June 12 approved draft resolutions on the liquidation of 490 districts and formation of 129 new districts, including 17 districts in the temporary occupied territory of Crimea, Donetsk and Luhansk regions.

However, the final version of draft resolution No.3650 "On Formation and Liquidation of Districts", additionally agreed by the relevant parliamentary committee, stipulated the formation of 136 new districts.
