 MP Lutsenko offers establishing Kryvyi Rih region

Poroshenko Bloc faction leader Yurii Lutsenko deems it necessary in the near future to consider the establishment of the Kryvyi Rih region under the administrative-territorial reform.

He said this during a meeting of the heads of parliamentary factions with a delegation from Kryvyi Rih (Dnipropetrovsk region) on Wednesday, Censor.NET reports citing Ukrainski Novyny.

"It would be logical to consider now the issue of establishing the Kryvyi Rih region under the administrative-territorial reform by combining the cities of Kryvyi Rih, Kirovohrad, and surrounding areas," he said.

According to Lutsenko, the populations of Kryvyi Rih and Kirovohrad are close to each other by the historical roots, economic and family ties.

As reported, the population of Kryvyi Rih is 642,500 people.
