Stara Syniava Raion (Ukrainian: Старосинявський район, Starosyniavs'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 urban-type settlement of Stara Syniava. Its population was 24,985 as of the 2001 Ukrainian Census and 21,276 as of 2012.
It was first established on March 7, 1923 as part of a full-scale administrative reorganization of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic.
The Stara Syniava 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 Stara Syniava Raion is divided into:
- 1 settlement council—made up of the urban-type settlement of Stara Syniava (administrative center)
- 16 village councils
Overall, the raion has a total of 45 populated localities, consisting of one urban-type settlement, and 44 villages.
