History

Klimovichskiy Uyezd was formed in March 1777. In 1796, the Uyezd became a part of the Belarusian Governorate. In 1802, it became a part of the Mogilev Governorate.[1]

From 1919, Klimovichskiy Uyezd became part of the newly formed Gomel Governorate of the Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic.

Starting in 1923, Soviet uyezds began transforming into different administrative districts called Raions.[2] In June 1927, Klimovichskiy Uyezd officially became a part of the Belorussian Mogilev District.[1]
