Large circle around Yubileyniy Airport

What is the large circle on the global map that surrounds Yubileyniy airport and Krayniy airport in Kazakhstan?

Seems to be just a map glitch. I wonder the same thing every time I fly past.

That’s actually the Baikonur cosmodrome located in Kazakhstan. It’s basically a launch and testing site for Russian spacecraft. The land is leased from the Kazakhs to the Russians till 2050. Had the same question myself. You can read more about it:
