In Russia, a city of federal importance[1][2] (Russian: город федерального значения, tr. gorod federalnogo znacheniya), also known as a federal city, is a city that has its own federal subject. Russia has three federal cities: Moscow, Saint Petersburg, and Sevastopol. Both Moscow and Saint Petersburg are major Russian cities, both having the status of capital either presently (Moscow) or in history (Saint Petersburg). Sevastopol is a federal city in the disputed Republic of Crimea, which is internationally recognized as part of Ukraine.
