Volhynia is divided into twelve districts. The principal towns are Jitomir, the capital, Berditschev, Storo-Konstantov, Ostrog, and Kremenets. Public education appears to be less backward in this than in most of the Russian governments. Volhynia, like Podolia, is subordinate to the military governor of Kiev, but is one of the Polish provinces which preserves, in some degree, its ancient constitution and laws.
