Russian Far East

Russian Far East ("Dal'nii Vostok" in Russian) is a term used to refer to the extreme south east parts of Russia, between Siberia and the Pacific.

The Russian Far East includes the territoies of Primorsky Krai, Khabarovsk Krai, Sakhalin. The main cities in the Russian Far East are Vladivostok, Khabarovsk, and Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk.

Russian Far East also is the name of a Russian federal county (Districts in Russia).

Russian Far East should not be confused with Siberia, which - at least in Russian mind - does not stretch all the way to the Pacific, but ends about 1000 miles west of it.
