The Crimean Federal District (Russian: Кры́мский федера́льный о́круг) is one of the nine federal districts of Russia. It was established on March 21, 2014 after the disputed accession of Crimea to the Russian Federation. The district includes both the disputed Republic of Crimea and the federal city of Sevastopol, both recognized as part of Ukraine by most of the international community. Oleg Belaventsev was appointed the presidential envoy. The administrative centre of the federal district is Simferopol.
