Okrug

   Usually translated as “district,” an okrug is an administrative division in the Russian Federation. After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, a number of autonomous okrugs were downgraded to okrugs within their corresponding federal subjects, including Aga Buryatiya, Komi-Permyakiya, Koryakiya, and Ust-Orda Buryatiya. In Samara Oblast, the lowest-level territorial division is the okrug rather than the traditional raion; Belgorod, Murmansk, and Krasnodar Krai also use okrugs to designate internal geopolitical divisions. Russia’s federal cities, Moscow and St. Petersburg, are similarly subdivided into okrugs.
