Russia is divided into twelve economic regions (Russian: экономи́ческие райо́ны, ekonomicheskiye rayony, sing. ekonomichesky rayon)—groups of administrative units sharing the following characteristics:

  • common economic and social goals and participation in development programs;
  • relatively similar economic conditions and potential;
  • similar climatic, ecological, and geological conditions;
  • similar methods of technical inspection of new construction;
  • similar methods of conducting customs oversight;
  • overall similar living conditions of the population.

No federal subject can belong to more than one economic region.

Economic regions are also grouped into economic zones (also called "macrozones"). An economic region or its parts can belong to more than one economic zone.

Establishment and abolishment of economic regions and economic zones or any changes in their composition are decided upon by the federal government of Russia.

This division into economic regions is different from the division into federal districts—the former is done solely for economic and statistical purposes, while the latter is purely administrative.

  1. Central economic region
  2. Central-Chernozemic economic region
  3. East Siberian economic region
  4. Far Eastern economic region
  5. Northern economic region
  6. North Caucasus economic region
  7. Northwestern economic region
  8. Povolzhye economic region
  9. Urals economic region
  10. Volga-Vyatka economic region
  11. West Siberian economic region
  12. Kaliningrad economic region (shown with #7 on the map)
