|Moscow Metro station|

|Owned by||Moskovsky Metropoliten|

|Structure type||Ground level, covered, single-span|
|Opened||26 December 2009|
Myakinino opened on 26 December 2009. It is the first station to be built outside Moscow, in the town of Krasnogorsk. It is a ground station, located near the Moscow Oblast Administrative HQ and the Crocus City Mall.
The construction of the tunnel from Strogino station (previously the terminus of the line) to Myakinino started in summer 2008.
The station was named after the former village of Myakinino, which is currently inside the administrative territory of Moscow City, inside Kuntsevo District, Western Administrative Okrug. The name was approved by the government of Moscow basing on the suggestion by City commission on territorial units, streets and Metro stations.
The first plan of Strogino–Mitino extension did not include Myakinino station. It was included in the plan after the start of Strogino-Mitino line construction and the decision to unite the Krylatskoye-Mitino section with Arbatsko-Pokrovskaya Line. At first it was planned that Myakinino would be a shallow single-span station with island platform (according to the slightly modified plan of the now-cancelled Yugo-Zapadnaya station of Solntsevskaya Line) and would be situated near the new House of Moscow Oblast Government and trade centre Crocus Expo.
