Azovsky Nemetsky National District (Russian: Азо́вский Неме́цкий национа́льный райо́н; German: Deutscher Nationalkreis Asowo) is an administrative[1] and municipal[2] district (raion), one of the thirty-two in Omsk Oblast, Russia. It is located in the south of the oblast. The area of the district is 1,400 square kilometers (540 sq mi). Its administrative center is the rural locality (a selo) of Azovo.[1] Population: 22,925 (2010 Census);[3] 22,346(2002 Census).[6] The population of Azovo accounts for 26.2% of the district's total population.[3]


The first villages in what is now Azovsky Nemetsky National District were founded in 1893 by the Volga Germans.


Heads of the district administration were Bruno Heinrich Reuters (1992-2010) and Viktor Sabelfeld (2010-present).


The population of the district as of January 1, 2007 was 22,246, of which 56% were Russians, 24% Germans, 8.3% Kazakhs, and 6.8% Ukrainians.

Being considered a cultural heritage, and in order for the Azovsky Nemetsky National District to be a refugium for the dispersed and diminished Russlanddeutsche, the German language is officially endorsed, i.e., protected, supported and promoted.[7]
