The Kosovo-Pomoravlje District (Albanian: Lugina e Anamoraves but was renamed to District of Gnjilane), (Serbian: Косовско-Поморавски округ, Kosovsko-Pomoravski okrug) was a district in Kosovo between 1990 and 1999. It was located in the west part of Kosovo i Metohija. The area now has a population of 217,726. The seat of the district was in the city of Gnjilane. Along with the rest of Kosovo i Metohija, it was transferred to UN administration, a situation accepted by the Serbian government. In 2000 the UN administration renamed the district the District of Gnjilane as part of a series of reforms rejected by Serbia. The Serbian government holds that legally the Kosovo-Pomoravlje District still exists.
