Moskal proposes special status for 150 settlements in Luhansk region


Head of Luhansk Regional State Administration Hennadiy Moskal has compiled a list of 154 towns and villages in the region to which he proposes granting a special local government status, the governor’s press service has reported.
“The administrative units stated on the list are on the Ukrainian-controlled territory, but it is impossible to convene meetings of district, town or village councils, as there are no mayors, village heads, and others. They fled to Russia, are in the militia among militants or are brought by Ukrainian law enforcement agencies to justice for separatism. Local government agencies cannot perform their direct functions, so they must be reelected and restarted,” Moskal said.
He sent to the Verkhovna Rada chairman a list of districts, towns and villages in Luhansk region that require a special local government order (according to the law on a special local government order in some districts of Donetsk and Luhansk regions, this list is approved by the Verkhovna Rada).
As reported, on October 16, Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko signed a law on the special status of Donbas. On October 18, the law came into force. A special order in these areas is introduced by the law temporarily, for three years, from the date of its entry into force.
