History[edit]

The first settlement on the site was founded in 1924 in connection with a sawmill.[citation needed] The settlement was originally named Dalles (Дальлес),[citation needed] from the Russian word dalny for "distant" (referring to the Russian Far East) and les for "forest". In 1932, Dalles was merged with the nearby village of Novostroyka, granted urban-type settlement status and renamed Lesozavodsk. Lesozavodsk was granted town status in 1938.[citation needed]

Administrative and municipal status[edit]

Within the framework of administrative divisions, it is, together with twenty-one rural localities, incorporated as Lesozavodsk Town Under Krai Jurisdiction—an administrative unit with the status equal to that of the districts.[1] As a municipal division, Lesozavodsk Town Under Krai Jurisdiction is incorporated as Lesozavodsky Urban Okrug.[2]

Transportation[edit]

Lesozavodsk has a station on the Trans-Siberian Railway at Ruzhino, the M60 motorway between Khabarovsk and Vladivostok passes about 10 kilometers (6.2 mi) east of the town.

Military[edit]

The 130th Machine Gun Artillery Division of the 5th Army, Far Eastern Military District, has been based here for many years.
