    HistoryEdit

    According to historical findings on the current territory of the Amur-Nyzhnodniprovskyi District there was a village called Kamianka that was founded in 1596.[1] Kamianka is considered to be one of the oldest settlements in Left-bank Ukraine.[1] In 1757 the village Berezanivka was founded by the Zaporozhian Cossack Berezan.[1] The territory also contained the settlement of Manuylivka (the Ukrainian SSR changed the name to Vorontsovka in 1922) which was named after the Cossack settler Manuil.[1] Until 1786 all three villages belonged to belonged to the Samara province (palanka) of Zaporizhian Sich.[1] After the liquidation of Zaporizhian Sich by the Russian government of Catherine the Great in 1775, the region was admitted into the newly formed Novomoskovsk county of Yekaterinoslav Governorate.[1] The territory on the left bank of Dnieper across Yekaterinoslav at interfluvial region between Dnieper and Samara was known locally as Zadniprovia (Trans-Dnieper region).

    The village of Amur emerged in 1875 and contained various factories.[1] To the east of Amur there was a village Baraf which was merged with Amur to form an industrial small city named Amur-Nyzhnodniprovskyi (Nyzhnodniprovskyi meaning "Lower Dnieper").[1] After a railway was laid in the area in 1895/1897 the area became heavy industrial.[1] In September 1917 all settlements of Zadniprovia were organized into a district of Zadniprovskyi Raion.[1] On 25 January 1918 the district was renamed into Amur-Nyzhnodniprovsk.[1]

    In World War II the area saw heavy fighting during the June 1941 phase of Operation Barbarossa.[1]

    In 1969 the district was split in half and at its eastern and northern portions was created the Industrialnyi District.[1] From the late 1970s until the mid 1980s the district was greatly expanded.[1]
