Subdivisions

Raions of Ukraine (often translated "districts"; Ukrainian: ?, romanizedraiony Ukrainy) are the second level of administrative division in Ukraine, below the oblast ("region").

As an administrative unit raions have existed in Ukraine since 1922 as part of an administrative reform in the Soviet Union.[1][nb 1] On 17 July 2020, the Verkhovna Rada (Ukraine's parliament) approved the administrative reform to merge most of the existing 490 raions, resulting in creation of 136 new raions.[3] The amalgamated hromadas have taken over most tasks of the raions (education, healthcare, sport facilities, culture, and social welfare).[4]

Terminology

Ukrainian Ukrainian translit. English
Rajon District[5][6]
? Rajon u misti Urban district, district of a city

Districts of cities

Some cities of oblast subordination along with the two cities of national significance (Kyiv and Sevastopol) are also divided in city raions, also called urban raions. City raions have their own local administration and are subordinated directly to a city. They may contain other cities, towns, and villages.

July 2020 reform

On 17 July 2020, the number of raions in Ukraine was reduced: since then there are 136 instead of 490.

Note: region is a general term referring to oblasts, the republic[nb 2] and cities with special status.[nb 3] The population recorded in the table is listed in accordance to the latest census taken in the country, Ukrainian Census (2001).
