Talk:Southern Russia

How does the (newly created article) Adygea fit into the established region structure of Southern Russia please? I see that the Krasnodar Krai region definition has just been changed to be Krasnodar Krai and Adygea. That does not sit well with the way we usually regionalise at WT (i.e. one region cannot really be two articles). Should Adygea be a part of Krasnodar Krai and Adygea or a separate region altogether? --Burmesedays 11:05, 24 June 2011 (EDT)

Adygea officially is a separate region of Russia, among the smallest ones and the only fully enclaved. Several years ago there were rumors about plans to merge Krasnodar Krai and Adygea, but as soon as this issue was a sensitive one, those plans were cancelled. Continuing the topic of Southern Russia, at the moment there are two official Russian federal districts on this territory: Southern District (includes Rostov Oblast, Krasnodar Krai, Adygea, Kalmykia and (!) Volgograd Oblast + Astrakhan Oblast) and North Caucasus district (includes national autonomies that are currently mentioned as North Caucasus at Wikitravel + Stavropol Krai). So, ideally, Russian regional structure need to comply with federal districts structure (there are quite many mismatches in other regions as well). But if not, Adygea should anyway be shown as a separate region. Andrey Selskiy 12:03, 5 July 2011 (EDT)
A separate article for Adygea isn't really something that we need for our purposes—at least until we have more content for this region. But people will still probably expect to see one, and will re-create it, so I see no harm in keeping it. --Peter Talk 19:08, 6 July 2011 (EDT)
