The Far Eastern Russia is the largest federal district in Russia. However, its population of over 6 million is the lowest amongst the seven federal districts in Russia.
The Far Eastern federal district of Russia consists of eight federal subjects:
Far Eastern Russia has very cold winters but there are differences between places more inland and coastal areas. While Yakutsk for example sees temperatures below -30 degrees from November to March, and sometimes temperatures below -50 are possible. Summers here are warm (around 20 degrees) but short, lasting from June to August. This is also when most of the precipitation falls. In winter, there isn't much because it is simply too cold. Most of the snow falls between the end of September and early November and only starts melting in May.
Further southeast towards the Ocean, places like Vladivostok are milder, but still cold. Temperatures are around -15 degrees in winter and well above 20 in summer. Most of the precipitation falls in summer here as well, with more snow compared to the inland areas in winter, because it is relatively mild.
