Vyacheslav Zubenko, director general of the Institute for Budgetary and Socio-Economic Research underlined that implementation of participatory budgeting in Kyiv and 14 other cities by providing the Citizens’ Project electronic system has become possible thanks to financing by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID).
