"A Republican subordination"[edit]

Er, what does this mean? -- ℜob C. alias ÀLAROB 00:49, 2 October 2012 (UTC)

It is consisted with administrative division of the Russian Federation. Each republic of the Soviet Union had its city of republican significance (or subordination), usually it was a capital. Administrative centers of oblasts had status of regional significance. Closed cities were some selected cities and it was not really a status, at least officially. Closed cities were classified localities. There also are cities of raion significance. Soviet cities in general were special types settlements and had a certain degree of self-government.
