Armavir (Russian: Армави́р) is a city in Krasnodar Krai, Russia, located on the left bank of the Kuban River. Population: 188,832 (2010 Census);[3] 193,964 (2002 Census);[7] 160,983 (1989 Census);[8] 144,000 (1969). Armavir was formerly the second-largest industrial center of Krasnodar Krai, after Krasnodar.

History[edit]

It was founded in 1839[5] by Cherkesogai Armenians as Armyansky aul (Армя́нский ау́л). It happened due to the strengthening of Islamic radicalism in mountain areas originally inhabited by the Cherkesogai, which motivated Christian Armenians to leave those settlements. It was renamed in 1848 in honor of the ancient capital of Armenia and was granted town status on January 18, 1914.[citation needed] During the Russian Civil War of 1918–1920, a number of brutal battles took place near the city. The Taman army's military campaign ended in Armavir in 1918. The Soviet authority was established in Armavir in March 1920. During World War II, the city was occupied by the German Army. It was liberated by the Red Army in January 1943.

Administrative and municipal status[edit]

Within the framework of administrative divisions, it is, together with eleven rural localities, incorporated as the City of Armavir—an administrative unit with the status equal to that of the districts.[1] As a municipal division, the City of Armavir is incorporated as Armavir Urban Okrug.[2]

Climate[edit]

Armavir has a humid subtropical climate.[9]
