After the collapse of the Soviet Union, one of the most acute problems in the post-socialist republics was the formation and strengthening of local self-government. Over the past two decades, several models of development have been selected and some positive steps have been taken, but the actual development of local governments has failed.
The need for self-development is now particularly acute, since most post-socialist stateshave set themselves on a course to integration into the Euro-structures, therefore, it is extremely important for local authorities to develop a strategy that should ensure social and economic development and increased level of competitivenessof municipalitiesin the former Soviet republics. For many years, there was no legislative base that would ensure the further development of municipalities. The policy towards municipalities was not effective, and that was aggravated by high crime rates and terrible economic situation in these republics, decrease in labor and entrepreneurial activity, which, in turn, negatively affected the development of municipalities and made their activities unpredictable.
