Abstract: 

During the last decade studies of cities in Ukraine are characterized by greater skewness toward descriptiveness, loss of relation with the key theories and concepts that explain urban development in general and in conditions of post-socialist transformations in particular. Experience of urban researches of many post-socialist countries shows the growing importance of theorizing and conceptualization of various aspects of urban development. So now the important task is to return the Ukrainian urban studies toward integration into the global theoretical discourse. Thus, it is worth to consider the concept of differential urbanization. H. S.Geyer & T.A.Kontuly proposed theoretical model of differential urbanization, which was tested on the example of several countries. Is it possible in Ukraine identifying the typical stages of the differential urbanization? What is the sequence of stages of differential urbanization in Ukraine? How similar time-limits of stage of differential urbanization in Ukraine and other countries for which the model has already been tested? These questions will be answered in the article.
