Ust-Maya (Russian: Усть-Ма́я; Yakut: Уус Маайа) is an urban locality (an urban-type settlement) and the administrative center of Ust-Maysky District of the Sakha Republic, Russia, southeast of Yakutsk, the capital of the republic. As of the 2010 Census, its population was 2,293.[3]

Geography[edit]

Ust-Maya is located on the north bank of the Aldan River opposite the mouth of the Maya River. The Sette-Daban mountain range rises to the east of the town.[11]

History[edit]

Ust-Maya was founded in 1930 as a base for gold mining activities on the Allakh-Yun and Yudoma Rivers to the east.[citation needed] It became the administrative center of the newly created Ust-Maysky District in 1931.[citation needed] During World War II, an airfield was built here for the Alaska-Siberian air route used to ferry American Lend-Lease aircraft to the Eastern Front.[12] In 1957, Ust-Maya was granted urban-type settlement status.[2] In 1972, the administrative center of the district was moved to Solnechny, where it remained until 1992, when it was moved back to Ust-Maya.[citation needed]

Within the framework of administrative divisions, the urban-type settlement of Ust-Maya[1] serves as the administrative center of Ust-Maysky District.[2] As an administrative division, it is, together with one rural locality (the selo of Ust-Yudoma), incorporated within Ust-Maysky District as the Settlement of Ust-Maya.[2] As a municipal division, the Settlement of Ust-Maya is incorporated within Ust-Maysky Municipal District as Ust-Maya Urban Settlement.[5]
