Krasnov (Russ: Kраснов) is a major Alaskan city located in the Evgenigrad-Krasnov Oblast. Located 45 miles southeast of Evgenigrad, it is historically a manufacturing center and has a blue-collar culture. With a population of 475,000, it is one of the largest cities in Alaska, although it is often overshadowed by its nearby neighbor.
The city is named after General Anatoliy Krasnov, who was killed at the site of an old settlement there during the Alaskan War while defending the eastern approach to Evgenigrad from American soldiers, and the city grew exponentially between 1925 and 1975 during the regional oil boom. As of 2011, about 35% of the city is still employed by various gas and oil companies.
