Sakhalinball is an island in eastern Asia and an oblastball of Russia-icon.png Russiaball. The southern half of the island used to be part of Japanese-Empire-icon.png Japanese Empireball until 1945. In the same way that Ireland-icon.png Irelandball is located in the British isles but it is not UK-icon.png British (except Northern Ireland-icon.png Northern Irelandball), he is located in the Japanese Archipelago, but he is not Japan-icon.png Japanese.


Sakhalin-icon.png Sakhalinball was claimed by both Russia-icon.png Russiaball and Japan-icon.png Japanball over the course of the 19th and 20th centuries. These disputes sometimes involved military conflict and divisions of the island between the two powers. In 1875, Japanese-Empire-icon.png Japanese Empireball ceded its claims to Russian-Empire-icon.png Russian Empireball in exchange for the northern Kuril Islands.

In 1905, following the Japanese victory in the Russo-Japanese War, the island was divided, with the south going to Japanese-Empire-icon.png Japan. In the final days of World War II in 1945, Soviet-icon.png Soviet Unionball invaded Karafuto-icon.png Karafutoball (South Sakhalinball) as well as all of the Kuril Islands. Russia-icon.png Russiaball has held all of the island ever since. Japan-icon.png Japanball no longer claims any of Sakhalin-icon.png Sakhalinball, although it does still claim the southern Kuril Islands. Most Ainu-icon.png Ainu on Sakhalin-icon.png Sakhalinball moved to Hokkaido-icon.png Hokkaidoball, only 43 km (27 mi) to the south, when the Japanese were displaced from the island in 1949. Only a few Ainu-icon.png Ainu remain.
