The city is now headed by the head of city administration Oleksandr Popov and the acting city mayor Halyna Hereha.


The Interfax-Ukraine News Agency – a company belonging to the Interfax Information Services international group – has been an information provider in the political and economic information market of Ukraine since 1992.

 Ukrainian Parliament Speaker Volodymyr Lytvyn believes that the election of Kyiv mayor may be held in spring of 2013.

Lytvyn said this during an online conference on Facebook on Friday.

According to the speaker, a decision about the mayoral election in the capital city will be taken after political consultations.

"As a matter of fact, the decision will be taken after coordination of political positions, since the value of the city, I believe, is in many ways comparable to the value of the Verkhovna Rada," Lytvyn said.
