“We also discussed the next changes for financial sustainability of Ukrainian cities and towns and for other reforms we need. This includes creation of the municipal police. This also includes the influence of local authorities on, for example, the appointment of Heads of regions in the capital. In our country, the President appoints the governmor, and the Mayor cannot fire head of a region, not even reprimand him without the concurrence of the President!”, Klitschko emphasized.

Previously, Vitaliy Klitschko stated he would be running for the office again. According to the head of Kyiv City State Administration, his only reason to chair the office would be to finish what his team started.
