Oleksandr Korniienko, the First Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine, emphasised this during a panel discussion at the Conference on Rebuilding Ukraine in Berlin — "Resilient Municipalities: Strong Local Self-Government for the Rebuilding of Ukraine". 

"At the same time, a successful decentralisation reform will help to effectively and quickly approach the decentralisation of the energy sector," the First Vice Speaker stressed. 

As he noted, the war has caused many challenges, including the suspension of the transfer of local tax administration to municipalities: "But we will definitely return to this." 

Regarding legislative plans in the context of local self-government, the First Deputy Chairman of the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine noted that work will continue on the resource base, financial decentralisation, the Law on Public Consultations and regional development issues. 

"The potential in communities must grow, as well as their capacity, which will allow them to implement European-level projects and improve living conditions on the ground," Oleksandr Korniienko concluded, expressing gratitude to the partners for their assistance on this path.
