Creation of the Chernihiv Military Administration
Presidential decree #69/2023
Decision-maker: Volodymyr Zelensky, the President of Ukraine
Who is affected: inhabitants and local governments of the Chernihiv community, service members, and the President
Summary of the decree: the President created the Chernihiv Military Administration. The military will replace local governments until martial law is over.
What is right: Chernihiv gets a permanent governing body. On December 7, 2022, Vladyslav Atroshenko, the mayor of Chernihiv, was removed from office for a year. Later, he lost his case in the appeal court. Therefore, the Chernihiv community had no elected mayor and that is why the military administration was created.
What is wrong: establishment of military administrations to replace local self-governance bodies can be an attempt to pressure local authorities. Back in July 2022, Vladyslav Atroshenko mentioned the possibility that a military administration would be created in Chernihiv. The mayor of Dnipro, Borys Filatov, also warned about similar threats.
