The Eastern Military District was created as part of the 2008 military reforms, and founded by Presidential Decree №1144 signed on September 20, 2010, to replace the Far East Military District with the addition of the Transbaikal section of the Siberian Military District. The district began operation on October 21, 2010, under the command of Admiral Konstantin Sidenko.
