North Caucasian Federal District (Russian: Се́веро-Кавка́зский федера́льный о́круг, Severo-Kavkazsky federalny okrug) is one of the nine federal districts of Russia. It is located in the extreme southwest of Russia, in the geographical area of the North Caucasus. The federal district was split from Southern Federal District on January 19, 2010.[2]

The population of the federal subjects comprising the federal district was 9,428,826 according to the 2010 Census,[1] living on an area of 170,700 square kilometers (65,900 sq mi).[citation needed]

The current Envoy is Sergei Melikov.


Ethnic Russians constitute less than one-third of the total population at 2,854,040 (30.26 %) according to the 2010 Census, and are concentrated in Stavropol Krai. A diverse assortment of ethnic groups, most of which are Muslim, form the remainder, and the North Caucasus Federal District is Russia's only Muslim-majority district.
