Russia, formaly the Russian Federation (Российская Федерация), is the largest country on Earth with an area of over 17 million square kilometers.

Russia is divided into one avtonomnaya oblast' (autonomous region); four avtonomnyy okrug (autonomous province); two gorod ([federal] cities); nine kray (territory); 46 oblast'(region); and 21 respublika (republic).

In 2014 the Crimean Republic (Республика Крым) declared independence from Ukraine and joined the Russian Federation - however this decision has not been widely recognised internationally and following our guidelines on disputed territories we do not currently list Crimea as part of the Russian Federation.
