History

The Zaporizhia Oblast was created as part of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic on January 10, 1939.

The territory of the oblast came under the dominion of the Golden Horde after the fall of Kievan Rus'. The steppes off of the Dnieper River were subsequently ruled by the Crimean Khanate, beginning in 1445.

From the 15th century to the 18th century, the northern parts of the province belonged to the Zaporizhian Sich - a self-governed military republic of the Ukrainian Kozaks.
