I'm currently working with OSM/Nominatim and getting ready to create a hierarchical tree of Russia's administrative districts starting from district, and ending with city. As the PostgreSQL from Geografik being parsed into the database, and has taken quite a while, I'm wondering if there are any other ways to gather such hierarchy.

One that I found was Overpass API, but its query language is quite cryptic.

The other was Nominatim which I'm also not yet 100% how to operate with.

Are there are instruments out there that would allow me to extract specific administrative level(s) (3 to 6) data for Russia quickly?


Having read about Nominatim configuration, I'm importing a much lesser dataset for administrative boundaries and places through settings/import-admin.style.
