In compliance with the Resolution (No. 2217a/P1), the draft law No. 2217a on the introduction of the decentralization amendments into the Constitution of Ukraine has been preliminarily adopted.

In particular, the draft law envisions that the territory of Ukraine is divided into communities. A community is the primary unit in the system of administrative and territorial structure of Ukraine.

It is also envisioned that the administrative and territorial structure of Ukraine is based on the principles of unity and integrity of the state territory, decentralization of power, ubiquity and ability of local self-government, stable development of administrative and territorial units taking in account historical, economic, environmental, geographical and demographical peculiarities, ethnic and cultural traditions.

Besides, the draft law envisions abolition of the institution of heads of local state administrations and withdraws local state administrations from the constitutional regulation.

The draft law envisions the Set of measures on the implementation of the agreements reached in Minsk (Belarus) on February 12. The said Set of measures envisages that peculiarities of the local self-government in some districts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions are determined by a standalone law.
