The head of the Dnipropetrovsk Oblast Administration, Ihor Kolomoyskyy, is calling for the creation of a council of governors of Southeastern Ukraine, according to his statement posted on the website of the Oblast State Administration, as reported by Ukrainska Pravda, May 4.
“As a result of a chain of political events, including those inspired from outside the country, Ukraine is in grave danger of losing its territorial integrity,” Kolomoysky says.
Since the scenarios for this threat will be played out first of all in the southeast oblasts, Kolomoysky argues for the absolute necessity of creating a coordinating body to ensure organized and effective work by the governors in these areas.
“I propose that very soon we create a Board of the Governors of Southeastern Ukraine and include the heads of the oblast administrations of the Kharkiv, Dnipropetrovsk, Donetsk, Luhansk, Zaporizhzhia, Kherson, Mykolayiv and Odesa oblasts,” he says.
According to Kolomoysky, the main task of the Board of Governors would be to create the necessary conditions for holding transparent and honest presidential elections in Ukraine on May 25, 2014, under the supervision of international observers.
