Khanka Lake (Russian: о́зеро Ха́нка; Traditional Chinese: 興凱湖, Simplified Chinese: 兴凯湖, pinyin: Xingkai Lake), is a transboundary water body located on the border between Heilongjiang Province, Northeast China and Russia (at 45°0′N 132°25′E). It is situated 120 km from Jixi. The area of the lake is 4,190 km² of which 3,030 km² are located in Russia, and 1,160 km²—in China. The area around the lake is an important wetland habitat and forms a National Nature Reserve on the Chinese side and the Khanka Lake Nature Reserve on the Russian side. It is a remarkable site for nature protection, eco-tourism as well as scientific research (concerning bird migrations). The lake area located on Chinese territory belongs to the Chinese government and is exploited by collective farms or state farms for fishery, agriculture and livestock raising. (wikipedia.com)

Primorsky Krai isn't a city, though.
It's an area like a county or a province.
