President Yanukovych meets Kyiv Mayor Chernovetsky

The President of Ukraine reminded about his instructions to the Government to consider the problems of the city, which concern its residents.

Tomorrow Ukrainian Ministers, leadership of the Presidential Administration, city Mayor and chairmen of city district administrations will meet at the Cabinet of Ministers of Ukraine to discuss solving urgent problems and further development of Kyiv.

"Kyiv is the face of the country, and I would like it to be attractive", stated Viktor Yanukovych.

The President instructed the Kiev Mayor to give suggestions on solving urgent problems of the capital and on the city development strategy.

"This is an important issue that concerns not only the community of Kyiv, but the whole country", he said.

He drew Leonid Chernovetsky’s attention to the fact that recently both the citizens and media have been criticizing city authorities.

"So I would like to hold a critical talk with you, frankly, to see what needs to be done to solve the primary problems of the city", Viktor Yanukovych stressed.

In his turn, Leonid Chernovetsky thanked the President for his attention, particularly for his instructions to the Government to do everything to help the capital city in solving the most painful problems.
