As a separate administrative unit, by the request of the Armenian population, the Myasnikovskiy District was established in 1926, by the decree of the Don Committee Presidium, prescribing to separate the Armenian district with the five mentioned villages from the Aksayskiy district territory and to establish its administrative center in the town of Nakhichevan-on-Don.
