The Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine announced plans to create in the Crimea the ten districts, and approved a list of 129 districts in Ukraine instead of the current 490.
The decision was taken at an extraordinary government meeting.
“The current district division was formed in the USSR in the first half of the last century. This is not consistent with modern standards of administrative-territorial division at the subregional level, therefore, it is necessary to restore order”, – said Premier-Minister Denis Shmyhal.
As an example, the areas inhabited 5 thousand people and areas with a population of 180 thousand.
“Large disparities in grants, subsidies. Responsibility in these areas are the same, but the load is different,” added Smigel.
Earlier, the Cabinet decided to reinforce the control of passenger transportation.
The Cabinet also simplified the Ukrainians pensions.
