Kyiv, Jan. 21 (Interfax-Ukraine) - The number of officials at Kyiv City State Administration will be reduced, Kyiv City Council Secretary Halyna Hereha said in an interview with ZN.UA. According to a statement, Hereha denies the information that this would be done under the order of the presidential administration.

"Indeed, this draft decision will be considered at one of the next meetings [of Kyiv City Council]. But the optimization of the structure is not the initiative of Bankova [Street], there is a similar section in the strategy of Kyiv's development," she said.
