In the Russian Federation, a city of federal importance (Russian: город федерального значения, tr. gorod federalnogo znacheniya), also known as a federal city, is a city that has a status of both an inhabited locality and a constituent federal subject. There are three federal cities: Moscow, Saint Petersburg, and Sevastopol. Two of them are the largest cities in the country: Moscow is the national capital and Saint Petersburg is a previous Russian capital and important port city in the Baltic Sea. Sevastopol is the newest federal city, located in the disputed region of Crimea, which is internationally recognised as part of Ukraine.
