"According to him, special attention will be paid to the front-line zone, improving services, developing small businesses and civil society, and supporting the media (especially to improve the quality of content and media literacy of the population). The need to coordinate efforts of international organization and the regional administration was discussed separately - this is necessary to avoid a duplication of projects, cover more areas and improve efficiency," Kuts added.
