"One should not rely on TV or Facebook to make sure that there is a demand for decentralization, but ask the people whether they are interested in the authorities being closer to them or not, interested in the decisions being made by their community rather than by permission from Kyiv authorities; whether they have started to fill better after receiving additional 40 percent of the funds, has it become better after they started taking decisions on construction of roads, houses, or other implementation of these funds?" he said.
