Shcherbinka (Russian: Ще́рбинка) is a town, formerly in Moscow Oblast, Russia, and since July 1, 2012 a part of the federal city of Moscow, Russia. It is located 37 kilometers (23 mi) south of the center of Moscow. Population: 28,043 (2002 Census);[4] 28,011 (1989 Census).[5]


It was founded in the late 14th century as a village of Shcherbinino (Щерби́нино) and granted town status in 1975.

In 1984, the western part of Shcherbinka was transferred to Moscow and is currently a part of Yuzhnoye Butovo District.

Administrative and municipal status

Within the framework of administrative divisions, it was incorporated as Shcherbinka Town Under Oblast Jurisdiction—an administrative unit with the status equal to that of the districts.[6] As a municipal division, Shcherbinka Town Under Oblast Jurisdiction was incorporated as Shcherbinka Urban Okrug.[7]

On July 1, 2012, Shcherbinka was transferred to the federal city of Moscow and became a part of Novomoskovsky Administrative Okrug.[1]
