Encyclopedia > Subdivisions of Ukraine

Ukraine is subdivided into 24 oblasts (Ukrainian singular: область, oblast'; plural області, oblasti), one autonomous republic (автономна республіка, avtonomna respublika), and two "cities with special status" (singular місто зі спеціальним статусом, misto zi spetsial'nym statusom). An oblast (Russian, Ukrainian: о́бласть) is a subnational entity of Bulgaria, the Russian Federation, Ukraine, and the now-defunct Soviet Union, approximately equivalent to a province. ... Autonomy is the condition of something that does not depend on anything else. ... In a broad definition a republic is a state or country that is led by people who do not base their political power on any principle beyond the control of the people living in that state or country. ...

General scheme of administrative subdivision

Those three types of national-level units are further subdivided into raions (Ukrainian singular: район, raion). Urban settlements (Ukrainian singular: місто, misto) are subordinated to either the central government, oblast, or raion, depending on their population and socio-economic importance (see also: List of cities in Ukraine). The raions (districts) are a constituent part of oblasts, but also of large urban settlements (i.e. cities and megacities). The typical misto may be considered to be a city, not a town (compare to City status in the United Kingdom). However, the misto's subordination to either oblast or raion should be taken into account, especially in the political sense. There are also a few lowest-level administrative units, which may be generally called villages. See rayon for the textile made of processed cellulose. ...

  1. Romanized using Ukrainian National standard. Details at Romanization of Ukrainian.
  2. Province is more precise because region may also refer to supranational geographic entity.
  3. Region is ambiguous since it usually refers to larger national-level units; area is inaccurate.

Oblasts

Most of Ukraine's oblasts (provinces) are named after their capital cities, officially called "centers" (Ukrainian singular: обласний центр, oblasnyi tsentr). The name of each oblast is a relative adjective, formed by adding a feminine suffix to the name of respective center city. E.g. Poltava is a center of Poltavs'ka oblast' (Poltava Oblast). An oblast (Russian, Ukrainian: о́бласть) is a subnational entity of Bulgaria, the Russian Federation, Ukraine, and the now-defunct Soviet Union, approximately equivalent to a province. ... In politics a capital (also called capital city or political capital — although the latter phrase has an alternative meaning based on an alternative meaning of capital) is the principal city or town associated with its government. ... Kinship is a biological and/or familial relationship between two organisms. ... An adjective is a part of speech which modifies a noun, usually making its meaning more specific. ... Suffix has meanings in linguistics and nomenclature. ...


Most of them are also sometimes referred to in a feminine noun form, following the convention of traditional regional place names, ending with the suffix "-shchyna". E.g. Poltava Oblast is also called Poltavshchyna.


Exceptions to this rule include:

  • Two oblasts, Volyn and Zakarpattia, which retain the names of their respective historical regions, Volyn' (Volhynia) and Zakarpattia (Transcarpathia), whose respective capitals are Lutsk and Uzhhorod.
  • Kiev (Kyiv), which is a municipality independent of the surrounding Kiev Oblast, but also the center of that oblast (administrative bodies of the oblast are situated inside the city).

An oblast center in Ukraine is usually the largest and most developed city in given province. Volhynia (Wołyń in Polish; Волинь, Volyn’ in Ukrainian; also called Volynia, Volyň in Czech) comprises the historic region in western Ukraine located between the rivers Pripyat and Western Bug. ... Zakarpattya or Transcarpathia (Закарпатська область, Zakarpats’ka oblast’ in Ukrainian) is an oblast (region) of Ukraine. ... Lutsk (Луцьк in Ukrainian, Łuck in Polish) is the capital of the Volyn region, Ukraine. ...

Administrative subdivision: Overview

The above-mentioned system reflects Ukraine's status as a unitary state (as stated in the country's constitution) with unified legal and administrative regime for each unit. However, experts agree that the wide autonomy of Crimea, the cultural and historical differences between provinces, combined with a lack of local democracy and order, diminish the formal unity of Ukraine significantly. The territorial, demographic and socioeconomic characteristics of some oblasts (such as of Donetsk and Chernivtsi oblasts) also weaken Ukraine's unity. This has the effect of slowing integration and causing local underdevelopment. So well-grounded reasons exist for reforming Ukraine's territorial structure, including: the integration of a few small oblasts, the broadening of oblast and city authority, and restricting the autonomy of the Crimean peninsula. A unitary state is a state or country that is governed constitutionally as one single unit, with one constitutionally created legislature. ... This article is about law in society. ...

The structure of a thing is how the parts of it relate to each other, how it is put together. This contrast with process, which is how the thing works; but process requires a viable structure. ... An oblast (Russian, Ukrainian: о́бласть) is a subnational entity of Bulgaria, the Russian Federation, Ukraine, and the now-defunct Soviet Union, approximately equivalent to a province. ...

For an understanding of the cultural and socioeconomic differences within the country, a knowledge of the Ukrainian historical regions is as crucial as studying its administrative structure. The word culture comes from the Latin root colere (to inhabit, to cultivate, or to honor). ...
