In 1793 it was annexed to Russia and became a district administrative center two years later. In 1810 construction began on the Bobruisk Fortress (completed in 1820), which successfully withstood a siege by Napoleonic troops in 1812. During the Great Patriotic War of 1941–45, Bobruisk was occupied by German fascist troops from the end of June 1941, until June 29, 1944. Soviet troops surrounded and destroyed a large grouping of German fascist forces near Bobruisk in 1944.
