Priamurye was discovered by the group of Russian explorers led by Vasily Danilovich Poyarkov in the first half of XVII century (1643-1644). In 1649, Erofey Pavlovich Khabarov explored Priamurye and he founded Albasin, which was the main city of Russian possessions in Priamurye. 1854 was start of the so-called "muraviev alloys" - cossacks resettlement from Transbaikalia in lower reaches of Amur, and Priamurye finally became a part of Russia.

Amurskaya OblastUnder the Decree of the Emperor of December 20 (8), 1858 the Amurskaya Oblast was established. Priamurye economic development began. The main population of the Amurskaya Oblast newly arrived, there was some waves of immigrants. In the beginning were moved the Transbaikalian cossacks who formed the Amur Cossack army and established chain of villages and farms in the valley of the rivers Amur and Zeya. The second big group of the population before the revolution was formed by peasants from the central areas of Russia which resettlement began in 1859.

In April, 1920, to avoid war with Japan, the "buffer" democratic state named Far East Republic, with the centre in Chita was formed from the Amurskaya, Transbaikalian, Kamchatskaya, Sakhalinskaya, Primorskaya Oblasts and existed for two years. In November, 1922 Far East Republic joined RSFSR and in November 8, the same year the Amurskaya Oblast was renamed to the Amurskaya Gubernia and existed till 1926. October 20, 1932 is the date of entering of the area into the Russian Federation structure. During administrative transformations of 1920-1930's the area was the part of the Far East Republic. Since October 1938, the area was the part of Khabarovsky Krai. In August 1948, the Amurskaya Oblast was detached from its structure into independent oblast.

In 1670, 1685 and 1686-1687 Albasin Ostrog was besieged three times with the armies of Manchurian China. After the signing of the Nerchinsk Treaty in1689, having destroyed the fortifications, defenders of the fortress abandoned it (the Amurskaya Oblast, Skovorodinsky district, Ablasino village).
