Abstract: 
The article concentrates on the separate aspects of local self-government functions and powers in the context of the process of authority decentralization in Ukraine. The author endorses the idea that the draft of Ukrainian law: “On amendments to the Constitution of Ukraine” (as to decentralization of power) that was added to the Verkhovna Rada of Ukraine agenda in 2015 does not provide for enlargement of powers of territorial communities. As a result such changes are primarily aimed at increasing the capacity of communities to exercise their powers. At the same time functions and powers of local community require to be fixed more accurately that provide financial and property autonomy of local self-government and powers with regard to local referenda.
