I'm trying to export all objects of East Kazakhstan region(as in image) from OSM file into separate pbf/osm file. What I'm trying to do is extract data from kazakhstan-latest.osm.pbf file by using osmconvert and osmfilter commands, but seems like it doesn't do what I would like to get.
After running the command:
./osmfilter kaz.o5m --verbose --keep="admin_level=4 and name=Восточно-Казахстанская\ область" -o=east2.osm
I see that my extracted file is only 3.1 Mb which is definitely small for such area.
