  Raion - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
A raion (or rayon) (Russian and Ukrainian: райо́н; Belarusian раён; Azeri: rayon, Latvian: rajons, Georgian: რაიონი, raioni) is one of two kinds of administrative subdivisions in languages of some post-Soviet states: a subnational entity and a subdivision of a city.
Raion is a subnational entity of Azerbaijan, Belarus, Georgia, Latvia, Moldova, the Russian Federation, Ukraine, and the former Soviet Union.
Typically, raions have some degree of self-governance in the form of a popularly elected district council (Raysovet) and the local head of administration, sometimes elected and sometimes appointed.

 Local Government
Changes have affected mainly oblast and raion governments, but as city governments are dependent on these higher-level governments for their budgets (see Local Budgeting), they are also greatly affected by these changes.
Raion and oblast council deputies are elected by the populations of their constituent communities.
The main responsibilities of the raion and oblast councils include the management of public property that is jointly owned by several territorial communities and used by the members of these communities, and the redistribution of funds between territorial communities in order to secure a minimum level of services in all populated areas of the region.

 Local Budgeting
For villages, towns, and cities subordinated to the raion center, that council is the raion council.
The 1996 Constitution of Ukraine mandates that raion and oblast councils are not higher-level councils, but local government bodies that represent the joint interests of the territorial communities within their districts, including villages, towns, and cities.
However, in the process of the adoption of the law "On Local Government," left-wing factions succeeded in defending the status of deputies in raion and oblast councils as representatives elected by the population and not delegated by the local councils.

To evaluate short term effects of rAION on RGC Bex expression, a double transgenic mouse strain was employed expressing cyan fluorescent protein (CFP) under control of the Thy-1 protein promotor, and beta-galactosidase (lacZ) under control of the immediate early stress c-fos gene promotor.
rAION was induced in anesthetized animals using tail vein injection of rose Bengal (2.5 mM in phosphate buffered saline, PBS; 1 ml/kg), followed by ON laser illumination with a frequency doubled YAG laser (535 nm; Iridex Corporation; Mountain View, CA), coupled to a slit-lamp (Haag-Streit, Koeniz, Switzerland) as previously described [18,19].
The effectiveness of Bex-ir visualization of RGC structures pre-and poststroke suggests that retinal Bex-ir localization may be useful in evaluating neuroprotective effectiveness of candidate drugs in CNS axonal stroke by enabling the direct and rapid visualization of the area of affected neurons.

 RADIO FREE EUROPE/ RADIO LIBERTY
Prigorodny Raion was incorporated into North Ossetia when the Checheno-Ingush Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic (ASSR) of which it was originally part was abolished in the wake of the 1944 deportation of the entire Chechen and Ingush peoples to Central Asia.
In the aftermath of the violence, Moscow imposed a state of emergency in Prigorodny Raion that remained in force until 1995; a joint request two years later by the then-presidents of both republics that it be reimposed was rejected as unconstitutional by then-Russian President Boris Yeltsin.
That document obliged both sides to take the necessary measures to eliminate the consequences of the 1992 clashes, including expediting the repatriation of Ingush fugitives; preventing the creation of illegal armed or separatist groups; and establishing mechanisms for consultations to prevent the emergence and escalation of new tensions, according to ingushetiya.ru.

Voblasts are further subdivided into raions (commonly translated as "districts" or "regions").
Local legislative authorities (raisovet, "raion council") are elected by the raion's residents; local executive authorities (raion administration) are appointed by higher executive authorities.
In the same way, each voblast has its own legislative authority (oblsovet), elected by residents, and an executive authority (voblast administration), whose leader is appointed by the President.
