Sevastopol is a city on the Black Sea, located in the southwest of the Crimean Peninsula—a territory disputed between Russia and Ukraine as a result of the 2014 Crimean crisis. It has been under the de facto Russian control since March 2014, when it was incorporated into Russia as one of its federal subjects, with a status of a federal city. Being a disputed territory, Sevastopol has two sets of laws governing how its administrative and municipal divisions are set up. Under both Ukrainian and Russian laws, the city is administratively divided into four districts.

Districts of Sevastopol:
  Gagarin Raion (Gagarinsky District)
  Lenin Raion (Leninsky District)
  Nakhimov Raion (Nakhimovsky District)
  Balaklava Raion (Balaklavsky District)

Under the Ukrainian laws, the districts have both administrative and municipal status, while under the Russian laws the districts are purely administrative and have no further divisions. Within the Russian municipal framework, however, the territory of the federal city of Sevastopol is divided into nine municipal okrugs and the Town of Inkerman. While individual municipal divisions are contained within the borders of the administrative districts, they are not otherwise related to the administrative districts. The borders of the municipal okrugs are unchanged from the borders of the municipalities which exist under the Ukrainian law.

Divisions under the Ukrainian law[edit]

Sevastopol is divided into four raions (districts):

Raion Area
(in km²)
Population 2014 Density
(per km²)
Gagarin Raion 61,1 123,768 2025,7
Lenin Raion 26,0 110,132 4235,8
Nakhimov Raion 231.5 105,149 454,2
Balaklava Raion 544,9 44,991 82,6

All settlements in Sevastopol are organized within the municipal raions. Most of the city's urban areas are located within the Lenin and Gagarin raions, with the Lenin Raion housing the city administration. The former Balaklava settlement, at the southern portion of Sevastopol, is part of the Balaklava Raion; a raion that contains 29 rural settlements which in turn comprise several villages. The town of Inkerman and the urban-type settlement of Kacha are located within the Balaklava Raion as well. The Chersonesus Taurica Preserve of Cultural Heritage with archaeological site and museum is located in the Gagarin Raion.

In part two of them (Gagarin and Lenin) includes only the streets, and the other two (Balaklava and Nakhimovskiy district) are also subject to 28 villages surrounding the city and more than 30 settlements without the status of settlement (such as agricultural or special settlements).[clarification needed]

Divisions under the Russian law[edit]

Under the Russian law, the only administrative divisions of the federal city of Sevastopol are the districts, which are the same four districts used under the Ukrainian laws.[1] Within the Russian municipal framework, however, the territory of the federal city of Sevastopol is divided into nine municipal okrugs and the Town of Inkerman.[2] While individual municipal divisions are contained within the borders of the administrative districts as to not create difficulties between various levels of governance, they are not otherwise related to those administrative districts.[2]
