History[edit]

In 1923, uyezds in Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic were abolished, and the governorates were divided into okruhas. In 1923, Voznesensk Raion with the administrative center located in Voznesensk was established. It belonged to Mykolaiv Okruha of Odessa Governorate.[2] In 1925, the governorates were abolished, and okruhas were directly subordinated to Ukrainian SSR. In 1930, okruhas were abolished, and on 27 February 1932, Odessa Oblast was established, and Voznesensk Raion was included into Odessa Oblast. In 1944, Voznesensk Raion was transferred to Mykolaiv Oblast. In 1975, Voznesensk became the city of oblast significance.[3]
