IMHO the article is correctly has to renamed Omsk region of the Russian Federation. (region is a translation of the russian word oblast).—The preceding unsigned comment was added by 220.127.116.11 (talk • contribs).
- This was discussed at length many times before. The bottom line is that "region" is too vague and unspecific, and that "oblast" is considered to be a legit loanword listed in major English dictionaries and encyclopedias (example). So the answer is no, neither this nor any other oblast article should be renamed.—Ëzhiki (Igels Hérissonovich Ïzhakoff-Amursky) • (yo?); 13:39, 19 December 2006 (UTC)
