Podvintsev O. B. “Resettlement Areas” within “National Outlying Districts”:
Contradictions of Sub-regional Structures of Russian Republics
The article analyzes social and political implications arising from the fact that within
two “national” subjects of the Russian Federation – the Republic of Komi and Republic
of Sakha (Yakutia) – there are resettlement areas, having their own identity and
characterized by fairly high share of the titular ethnic group within the population.
The author demonstrates the existence of latent threats to the integrity of the relevant
subjects of the federation, and concludes that the ethnic and identity policies carried
out in both regions do not provide adequate response to this challenge.
Key words: region; resettlement area; identity; ethnic politics; identity politics.
