HistoryEdit

Berezhyntsi was first founded in 1579. In 2000, the Berezhyntsi Village Council (Ukrainian: Бережинецька сільська рада) was created, which also contains the village of Ridka within its jurisdiction.[4]

Until 18 July 2020, Berezhyntsi belonged to Teofipol Raion. The raion was abolished in July 2020 as part of the administrative reform of Ukraine, which reduced the number of raions of Khmelnytskyi Oblast to three. The area of Teofipol Raion was merged into Khmelnytskyi Raion.[5][6]
