Chukotka Autonomous Okrug (Russian: Sibуко Rusyaтский автоноiyмный оукруг Chukotsky avtonomniy okrug) is located in the most northeastern part of Russia and Siberia. Until 1991, after being attached to Magadan Oblast with the name of the autonomous province of Chukchi, it became autonomous as the autonomous province of Chukotka. The easternmost part is the Çukçi Peninsula. It is generally mountainous and hilly except for the Anadir River basin. Due to the harsh Arctic climate, the vegetation is limited to tundras and several forests in the south. In the 1930s, it was created for the settlement of the Chukists, but because of the Russian immigrants, the Chukists fell into the second ethnic group.
