Yes, Visio does have a Distribute function. On the Home tab, in the Arrange group, select Position and then Distribute...

However, I'm not sure that's what Taras actually needs. In the bottom row of the example, I don't think you really want to distribute the four shapes evenly with respect to each other. I think you want to ensure that the left two are spaced properly with relation to the rectangle above them; the same with the pair on the right. Similarly, the rectangles should be spaced evenly with respect to the circle, not to each other.

The good news is that Visio, unlike PowerPoint or Publisher, allows you to embed formulas in shapes. For example, it would be possible to insert a formula in the left two shapes in the lower row so each is automatically positioned equidistant from the center of the rectangle above. Doing so is a "power user" sort of capability but it can be done. If you only have a few shapes, it can be done by hand. If you have dozens or hundreds, it would be more efficient to write a macro to embed the formulas for you.

How many shapes do you expect to have in your diagram?

Does Visio have the Option like in Powerpoint to Distribute evenly?

Powerpoint path - Arrange > Align > Distribute Hrozontally

I don't have Visio to look but being an MS Product I suspect it will have similar features for arranging items to PowerPoint and Publisher.
