At the present stage of development of Ukraine there was a question on carrying out of administrative-territorial reform, which is due primarily to the problems of transition to sustainable development and the requirements of the European Union. It is necessary to adapt administrative units with the requirements of the NUTS. Currently still developing the regional policy on administrative-territorial division and this approach does not meet basic European regions NUTS-II recommended to Ukraine. Genetic historical and geographical taxonomy of resettlement in contrast to the current administrative-territorial directly tied to the state regional policy, which is now in the stage of active formation. For the Ukrainian Danube region has significant multi-ethnic population that should be considered, especially in the allocation of territorial communities.
