The Far Eastern Federal District ( _ru. Дальневосто́чный федера́льный о́круг, "Dalnevostochny federalny okrug"), is the largest of the seven federal districts of Russia. With a population of over 6 million, the Far Eastern FD is the least populated federal district of Russia. The Far Eastern FD was established in 2000 by president Vladimir Putin and is currently being governed by presidential envoy Oleg Safonov. The Far Eastern FD covers the territory of the Russian Far East and is subdivided into republics that enjoy a high degree of autonomy on most issues. Many of these correspond to some of Russia's ethnic minorities.
