Ukraine/ 3. Competence, decision-making and administration  

3.3 Inter-ministerial or intergovernmental co-operation

A number of ministries and public agencies are involved in cultural affairs (including funding). In 2015, cultural issues constitute a part of programmes of the Ministry of Defence, the Ministry of Regional Development, Building and Housing, the Ministry of Education and Science, Youth and Sport, the State Committee on TV and Radio Broadcasting of Ukraine, the State Archive Service, the Ministry of Infrastructure of Ukraine and others. For example, the Ministry of Defence supports cultural events organised by the Ministry of Culture in the territories of armed conflict.  

The principal partners of the Ministry of Culture, according to the Budget 2015, are:

  • Ministry of Regional Development, Building and Housing (restoration work);
  • Ministry of Justice (legislative documentation);
  • State Archive Service (documentation);
  • State Committee on TV and Radio Broadcasting (publishing programme); and
  • Ministry of Foreign Affairs (international relations and promotion of Ukrainian culture abroad).

Different national cultural programmes or events are carried out in co-operation with regional, rayon or city authorities. For example, concert programmes in Mariupol are organised jointly by the Ministry of Culture, Ministry of Defence, Donetsk oblast administration and city administration.

After 2010, the number of local governments increased to 12 052 which is the largest in Europe apart from France (36 118). At the present moment, after the annex of Crimea and armed conflict in the eastern part of Ukraine, the number of local governments is 10 036.
