HistoryEdit

Horodok Raion was located in the southwestern part of the Khmelnytskyi Oblast, corresponding to the modern-day boundaries of the Podolia historical region.[5] It was established on March 7, 1923 as part of a full-scale administrative reorganization of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic.[1]

SubdivisionsEdit

At the time of disestablishment, the raion consisted of two hromadas:[6]

Horodok Raion was divided in a way that follows the general administrative scheme in Ukraine. Local government was also organized along a similar scheme nationwide. Consequently, raions were subdivided into councils, which were the prime level of administrative division in the country.

Each of the raion's urban localities administered their own councils, often containing a few other villages within its jurisdiction. However, only a handful of rural localities were organized into councils, which also might contain a few villages within its jurisdiction.

Accordingly, the Horodok Raion was divided into:[1]

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

Overall, the raion had a total of 74 populated localities, consisting of one city, one urban-type settlement, 71 villages, and one rural settlement.[1]
