The Kazakhstan–Russia border is the 6,846 kilometres (4,254 mi) border between the Republic of Kazakhstan and the Russian Federation. It is in the same location as formerly the administrative-territorial border between the Kazakh SSR and RSFSR. The modern shapes were acquired in 1930, and interstate status was set in 1991. In this case the boundary does not coincide with the territory of living of the peoples of the region. Kazakhs, Russians and other ethnic groups (Germans, Tatars, and Ukrainians) also live on both sides of the border.
