The district was formed in Presidential Decree №1144 signed on September 20, 2010. It absorbed the territories of the former Far East Military District and part of the former Siberian Military District with headquarters at Khabarovsk.
The federal subjects that are part of the district include Buryatia, the Sakha Republic, the Zabaykalsky Krai, the Kamchatka Krai, the Primorsky Krai, the Khabarovsk Krai, the Amur Oblast, the Magadan Oblast, the Sakhalin Oblast, the Jewish Autonomous Oblast and the Chukotka Autonomous Okrug.
