Ukrainian Prime Minister Oleksiy Honcharuk has announced personnel reshuffles in his Cabinet.

"There will be personnel changes. I've already signed one and submitted it to parliament. A Minister of Community Development – a person holding this position will be replaced. And we even plan to introduce the position of Deputy Prime Minister for Community Development. Why? Because decentralization is a priority this year. We must create capable communities throughout the country and ensure local elections are held in new communities in autumn, and there must be coordination at the highest level to this end," PM told one the Ukrainian TV channels.
