Laws of the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union are classed together in KLA.
Defunct jurisdictions, such as Russian gubernias and old Soviet administrative divisions that were later split are classed in KLA5000+. See also: Russian Guberniias.
Other defunct republics are given their own subschedule, e.g. Bukharskaia Narodnaia Sovetskaia Respublika (until 1924) is KLQ.
There is a question concerning the distinction between laws of Russia (Federation) and those of the Russian S.F.S.R. Specifically, many times a Russian S.F.S.R. law was adopted wholesale into Russia (Federation) while the name of the law even retained "RSFSR."
- Such laws should be entered under Russia (Federation) as the latest jurisdiction and classed in KLB.
- If there is no indication that a Russian S.F.S.R. law was accepted by Russia (Federation), (usually determined by date of publication), entry is under Russian S.F.S.R. and classed in KLN.
The laws of the old autonomous republics will still be classified in KLN293.5, A-Z, but the laws of any new governments (e.g. Karelia, Mari-El) will be classed in KLB2935, A-Z.
