  Oblast - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The oblast in Eastern Europe and Russian Federation geographic context is a subnational entity of Bulgaria, the Russian Federation, Ukraine, and the now-defunct Soviet Union.
Oblasts are purely administrative units without any significant history: all of them have been formed in the middle of the 20th century.
The administrative borders of several oblasts have sometimes been changed in order to reshuffle the local Communist Party organization, secure "the right" local administration for an industrial company, limit an ethnic activism etc. Such decisions were a Soviet version of the gerrymandering method of affecting a vote.
