ABOUT THE NORTH CAUCASIAN FEDERAL DISTRICT

The North Caucasian Federal District is one of eight federal districts of the Russian Federation. It was formed by separating it from the Southern Federal District on January 19, 2010 by the decree of the Russian Federation President. Alexander Khloponin was appointed Deputy Chairman of the Government of the Russian Federation and Presidential Plenipotentiary Envoy to the district.

 

Seven regions of the Russian Federation are included into the North Caucasian Federal District. These are as follows:

 

Pyatigorsk is the district's administrative center. This is the only center of the country's federal districts that is neither an administrative center of a region included into the district, nor the largest city in the district (though Pyatigorsk is included into the Caucasus – Mineralnye Vody agglomeration).

 

On December 17, 2012 the Russian Federation Government also approved the National Program of the North Caucasus Development for the period through to 2025. The total amount of financing under the program will make up about 2.5 tln. RUR.
