Borders of Russia

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki


Typical border marker of Russia

Russia has international borders with 16 sovereign states, including two with maritime boundaries (US, Japan), as well as with the partially recognized states of South Ossetia and Abkhazia. With a land border running 20,241 kilometres (12,577 mi) in total, Russia has (after China), the second-longest land border of any country. The present borders of the Russian Federation (then the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic) have been drawn since 1956 and remains the same after the dissolution of the Soviet Union in 1991.

Overview[edit]

Russia shares borders with more countries than any other state in the world, owing to its large expanse. This includes two partially recognized countries, and two with aquatic boundaries (see below; in italics).

Crimea[edit]

The status of the Crimea and of the city of Sevastopol is currently under dispute between Russia and Ukraine; Ukraine and the majority of the international community consider the Crimea to be an autonomous republic of Ukraine and Sevastopol to be one of Ukraine's cities with special status, while Russia, on the other hand, considers the Crimea to be a federal subject of Russia and Sevastopol to be one of Russia's three federal cities since the March 2014 annexation of Crimea by Russia.[2][3] Since 1991, Russia also leases Sevastopol Naval Base with current lease extending to 2040s with an option for another extension, but the State Duma approved the denunciation of this lease agreements unanimously by 433 members of parliament on 31 March 2014.[4]
