Administrative and territorial division of the Republic of Bashkortostan is regulated by the Law #178-z of the Republic of Bashkortostan, passed by the State Assembly—Kurultai on April 20, 2005. The Law established the following classification:

  • administrative units (административно-территориальные единицы):
    • district (район)—an administrative unit established to govern selsoviets, rural settlement councils, and towns under that district's jurisdiction. Districts cover territories with population of at least 20,000.

    • settlement council (поссовет)—an administrative unit established to govern an urban-type settlement with adjacent territories and/or selsoviets. Settlement councils have not been implemented in practice.
  • inhabited localities (населённые пункты):
    • urban localities (городские населённые пункты):
      • city/town under republic's jurisdiction (город республиканского значения);
        • city district (городской район)—an administrative unit of cities under republic's jurisdiction established to improve municipal government efficiency.

Famous quotes containing the words republic and/or divisions:

    Jean Jacques Rousseau ... is nothing but a fool in my eyes when he takes it upon himself to criticise society; he did not understand it, and approached it with the heart of an upstart flunkey.... For all his preaching a Republic and the overthrow of monarchical titles, the upstart is mad with joy if a Duke alters the course of his after-dinner stroll to accompany one of his friends.
    Stendhal [Marie Henri Beyle] (1783–1842)

    Nothing does more to activate Christian divisions than talk about Christian unity.
