Podilsk Raion (Ukrainian: Подільський район), known until 2015 as Kotovsk Raion (Ukrainian: Котовський район), is located in the Odessa Oblast of Ukraine. Its administrative center is the town of Podilsk.

In the 2001 census 25.9 percent of its population declared to be Moldovan.

On 21 May 2016, Verkhovna Rada adopted decision to rename Kotovsk Raion to Podilsk Raion and Kotovsk to Podilsk according to the law prohibiting names of Communist origin.[1]
