Kostiantynivka Raion (Ukrainian: Костянтинівський район; Russian: Константиновский район) is one of the 18 administrative raions (a district) of Donetsk Oblast in eastern Ukraine. It covers approximately 4.4 percent of the oblast's total area. Population: 19,160 (2013 est.); 21,132 (2001 Ukrainian Census).
The district was created on 7 March 1923 as part of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. Its administrative center is the city of Kostiantynivka, although the city itself is not administratively part of the Kostiantynivka Raion and is incorporated as a city of oblast significance.
The Kostiantynivka 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 Kostiantynivka Raion is divided into:
- 20 village councils
- Ukrainians: 77.3%
- Russians: 19.9%
- Belarusians: 0.9%
