In modern Ukraine, similar transformations are under way. There is a reform of decentralization of power and in this context, it would be advisable to turn to the historical experience of officials of the nineteenth century. In 1870, the reform of municipal self-government began. Since then, cities have considerable freedom in dealing with economic and humanitarian problems. In February 1917, the Russian Empire fell, therefore, the old municipal forms ceased to function and new forms began to emerge. This is due to the chronological framework of our study.
