Krais of Russia
A krai (Russian: край, tr. kray, IPA: [kraj], lit. edge) is a type of federal subject of Russia. Of the 85 federal subjects of Russia, 9 are krais. Krais legally have the same power as oblasts. The difference between the two is simply traditional. Both krai and oblast have similar general meaning ("region" or "area").
