Yarmolyntsi Raion (Ukrainian: Ярмолинецький район, Yarmolynets'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 Yarmolyntsi. Its population was 39,201 as of the 2001 Ukrainian Census[2] and 31,599 as of 2012.

Geography[edit]

The Yarmolyntsi Raion is located in the central part of the Khmelnytskyi Oblast, corresponding to the modern-day boundaries of the Podolia historical region. Its total area constitutes 898 square kilometres (347 sq mi) and about 4.5 percent of the oblast's area.[3]

History[edit]

The Yarmolyntsi Raion was first established on March 7, 1923 as part of a full-scale administrative reorganization of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic.[2]

Administrative divisions[edit]

The Yarmolyntsi 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 Yarmolyntsi Raion is divided into:[2]

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

Overall, the raion has a total of 60 populated localities, consisting of one urban-type settlement, and 59 villages.[2]
