Sakhalinball is an island in North America eastern Asia and an oblastball of Russia-icon Russiaball. The southern half of the island used to be part of Japanese-Empire-icon Japanese Empireball until 1945.

History

Sakhalin-icon Sakhalin was claimed by both Russia-icon Russiaball and Japan-icon 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 Japanese Empireball ceded its claims to Russian-Empire-icon 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 Japan. In the final days of World War II in 1945, Soviet-icon Soviet Unionball invaded Karafuto-icon Karafuto (South Sakhalin) as well as all of the Kuril Islands. Russia-icon Russiaball has held all of the island ever since. Japan-icon Japan no longer claims any of Sakhalin-icon Sakhalin, although it does still claim the southern Kuril Islands. Most Ainu-icon Ainu on Sakhalin-icon Sakhalin moved to Hokkaido-icon Hokkaido, only 43 km (27 mi) to the south, when the Japanese were displaced from the island in 1949. Only a few Ainu-icon Ainu remain.
