Sviatoshynskyi Raion (Ukrainian: Святошинський район, Sviatoshynskyi Raion) is an urban district in the city of Kiev located at the western part of city. Th district was created in 2001 after renaming the former Leningrad District. It borders four other districts in Kiev such as Podilskyi District, Obolonskyi District, Solomianskyi District, Shevchenkivskyi District as well as the Kiev-Sviatoshyn Raion and city of Irpin that administratively are part of Kiev Oblast. Its name raion takes from one of its historical neighborhoods.
The governing bodies of the adjacent Kyiv-Svyatoshyn Raion of the Kiev Oblast are situated in the Sviatoshyn Raion of Kiev as the former oblast raion is purely suburban and lacks a distinctive center settlement.
- The Kiev Oblast is administratively independent form the Kiev city, but Kiev historically hosts its governing bodies and other institutions.
