Administrative divisions of Crimea

Administrative divisions of Crimea

Crimea is a disputed area which as a result of the 2014 Crimean crisis is controlled and recognized by Russia as the Republic of Crimea, a federal subject of Russia. At the same time, Ukraine recognizes the territory as the Autonomous Republic of Crimea, a part of Ukraine.

The Republic of Crimea continues to use the administrative divisions of the Autonomous Republic of Crimea and is subdivided into 25 territorial entities: 14 districts (raions) and 11 city municipalities (mis'krada or misto), officially known as territories governed by city councils.[1]

Under both the Russian (post April 2014) and the Ukrainian (pre April 2014) administrative systems, the territory of Crimea excludes the City of Sevastopol.

Administrative divisions

Municipal divisions

The municipal divisions of the Republic of Crimea are identical with its administrative divisions. All of the administrative districts of the Republic of Crimea are municipally incorporated as municipal districts, and the cities of oblast significance are municipally incorporated as urban okrugs.[2][3]

The Autonomous Republic of Crimea has no municipal divisions, as they do not exist in Ukraine.
