"Today all Kyivans and Ukrainians have very high expectations. They are waiting for reform, rule of law, and responsible authorities. Everyone dreams of living in a modern European state. We have a great responsibility to our city and community, because Kyiv residents empowered us to assert their rights in the City Council. We will do our best not to disappoint them," Vitali Klitschko said.
Klitschko noted that today the City Council had commemorated those murdered in Maidan, those who gave their lives to change the country.
"We need to honor those who died. We must name Instytutska Street or its part after the Heaven’s Century. A memorial should be constructed in memory of those who died," Klitschko underlined.
The new mayor thanked Self-defense representatives, who agreed to vacate the building of the KCSA to enable new city authorities fully and effectively serve the people of Kyiv.
