Horodok Raion (Ukrainian: Городоцький район, Horodots'kyi raion) is one of the 20 administrative raions (a district) of the Khmelnytskyi Oblast in western Ukraine. Its administrative center is located in the city of Horodok. Its population was 58,348 as of the 2001 Ukrainian Census[1] and 49,939 as of 2012.

History[edit]

The Horodok Raion is located in the southwestern part of the Khmelnytskyi Oblast, corresponding to the modern-day boundaries of the Podolia historical region.[2] It was established on March 7, 1923 as part of a full-scale administrative reorganization of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic.[1]

Administrative divisions[edit]

The Horodok Raion is divided in a way that follows the general administrative scheme in Ukraine. Local government is also organized along a similar scheme nationwide. Consequently, raions are subdivided into councils, which are the prime level of administrative division in the country.

Each of the raion's urban localities administer their own councils, often containing a few other villages within its jurisdiction. However, only a handful of rural localities are organized into councils, which also may contain a few villages within its jurisdiction.

Accordingly, the Horodok Raion is divided into:[1]

  • 1 city council—made up of the city of Horodok (administrative center)
  • 1 settlement council—made up of the urban-type settlement of Sataniv
  • 29 village councils

Overall, the raion has a total of 74 populated localities, consisting of one city, one urban-type settlement, 71 villages, and one rural settlement.[1]
