In 2015 Russian Federation completely extended its rights on the continental shelf area in the central part of the Okhotsk Sea, located beyond 200-mile exclusive economic zone. This process took place in full accordance with the rules and provisions of the 1982 UN Law of the Sea Convention by appealing to the Commission on the Limits of the Continental Shelf. However, this development has led to Sea of ​​Okhotsk's legal status significant reduction especially in comparison with the legal status that was assigned in domestic legal doctrine previously. Distribution of Russian jurisdiction over the ​​Okhotsk's seabed and subsoil resources has also led to wrong classification of Okhotsk Sea as closed, land-locked sea. A critical analysis of what has happened and how this event should be considered due to Russian national interest, is given in this review. 

Keywords: exclusive economic zone | internal historical waters | sovereignty | anclave of the high seas |
