Learn more about Perm Krai
Perm Krai (Russian: Пе́рмский край) is a federal subject of Russia (a krai) that came into existence on December 1, 2005 as a result of the 2004 referendum on the merger of Perm Oblast and Komi-Permyak Autonomous Okrug. The city of Perm became the administrative center of the new federal subject. As of the 2002 Census, combined population of the two entities was 2,819,421, and the total area was 160,600 km², resulting in a population density of 17.6/km².
Komi-Permyak Okrug retains its autonomous status within Perm Krai during the transitional period of 2006–2008. It also retains a budget separate from that of the krai, keeping all federal transfers. After that, Komi-Permyak Okrug's budget will be subject to the budgeting law of Perm Krai. The transitional period was implemented in part due to the fact that Komi-Permyak Okrug relies heavily on federal subsidies, and an abrupt cut would be detrimental to its economy.
