Gorno-Altai Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Gorno-Altai Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic (Russian: Горно-Алтайская Автономная Советская Социалистическая Республика) was an autonomous republic of the Russian SFSR within the Soviet Union.[1] It was formed on 1 June 1922 as the Oyrot Autonomous Region and became the Gorno-Altai Autonomous Oblast on 7 January 1948. It was upgraded to the level of Autonomous Soviet Socialist Republic on 25 October 1990, and was declared a Soviet Socialist Republic on 3 July 1991, although it was not recognised as one.[2] It became the Altai Republic on 31 March 1992. Its capital was Gorno-Altaysk.[2] Agriculture is the main occupation for most of the inhabitants.[3] Like the modern Altai Republic, the Gorno-Altai ASSR shared its international border with the People's Republic of China.

The three kinds of such subdivisions included twenty autonomous republics, eight autonomous oblasts, and ten autonomous okruga.[4]
