Russian Guberniias

Guberniias were an administrative subdivision of the Russian Empire and were retained for a few years under the Soviet Union. Each was eventually changed to an oblast, avtonomnaia respublika, or other division.

The qualifier for a Soviet guberniia is never changed from (R.S.F.S.R.) to Russia (Federation) since it never existed under Russia (Federation).

Indirect subdivision goes through Russia (Federation) since the guberniias lie wholly within its jurisidiction, but the (R.S.F.S.R.) drops.
