Leninsky (Russian: Ле́нинский; Sakha: Ленинскай) is an urban locality (an urban-type settlement) in Aldansky District of the Sakha Republic, Russia, located 6 kilometers (3.7 mi) from Aldan, the administrative center of the district.[2] As of the 2010 Census, its population was 1,866.[4]

History[edit]

It was founded in 1926 as a gold-mining base and was known as Nizhne-Stalinsk (Ни́жне-Ста́линск) until 1962.[citation needed] The name referred to Joseph Stalin, with the "Nizhne-" part meaning lower, to differentiate it from the now disappeared settlements of Sredne-Stalinsk and Verkhne-Stalinsk further upstream. Urban-type settlement status was granted to it in 1932.[2]

Administrative and municipal status[edit]

Within the framework of administrative divisions, the urban-type settlement of Leninsky[1] is, together with one rural locality (the selo of Yakokut), incorporated within Aldansky District as the Settlement of Leninsky.[2] As a municipal division, the territories of the Settlement of Leninsky and the Settlement of Lebediny are incorporated within Aldansky Municipal District as Leninsky Urban Settlement.[3]

Economy[edit]

Gold mining in Leninsky stopped in 1998.[citation needed]

The Amur–Yakutsk Mainline railway passes nearby, as does the A360 Lena Highway to Yakutsk.
