Conditions and mechanisms of neotectonic fissuring and cave formation are considered with special reference to the gypsum massive of Podolia. The Podolian platform is shown to be a surprisingly stable morphostructure with planated topography which developed from the Silurian to the Middle Miocene. At the end of the Miocene the platform was uplifted up to 250 to 300 m a.s.l. During the Pleistocene the plain relief was covered by the loess periglacial formations and dissected by river network. The latter has not penetrated the central part of the gypsum massive of Podolia. Within the limits of the latter, due to the gypsum member viscous flow towards large river valleys a complicated dense network of subterranean holes developed : later on. they were remodelled by karstic processes and transformed into a system of Podolian caves unique in their genesis
