Fastov was known as a village from 1390. It became part of the Russian Empire in 1793. In 1870 a railroad station was built in Fastov on the Kiev-Odessa line. Soviet power was established on Jan. 30 (Feb. 12), 1918. In 1923 Fastov became a raion administrative center in Belaia Tserkov’ Okrug, and in 1932, a raion administrative center in Kiev Oblast. It was designated a city in 1938. The city was occupied by fascist German troops from July 22, 1941, to Nov. 7, 1943. A partisan detachment operated in the area, and a Komsomol diversionary group was active at the railroad junction.
