Signing the Treaty of Saint Petersburg

24 February, Tuesday

On February 24, 1881 the Treaty of Saint Petersburg, also known as Treaty of Ili, was signed

The Treaty was meant to border demarcation between Russia and China in the north-west of the Qing Empire, which sought to maintain control over the Ili region. Under this treaty the major part of the Ily region (around 80%) was given to the Qing Empire. Nevertheless, a part of the region went to the Russian Empire, making it possible for locals to become a Russian national.
