Vitaliy Klitschko, Kyiv city mayor will be running for the office again. The official said so on air of 112 Ukraine TV channel.

According to the head of Kyiv City State Administration, his only reason to chair the office would be to finish what his team started.

"I want to build Ukrainian Disneyland in Hydropark, and we've got a lot of plans to start this project now. I want to build the Babyn Yar memorial that we started working on three years ago, and it's a very important project - not something scaled down to Kyiv or Ukraine, but a world-level project", he said.

The mayor also added that he would like to finish Podilsko-Voskresensky bridge's construction. The automobile connection via this bridge is expected to be opened by late 2020.

Previously, Servant of the People party initiated a draft project that foresees separation of the mayor's office and that of the head of Kyiv City State Administration. In return, Klitschko said if the authorities are separated, he would urge for the early election of the city mayor.
