The vessel was built by the Amur Shipbuilding Plant (ASZ), a subsidiary of the United Shipbuilding Corporation, located in Komsomolsk-on-Amur. This represents the fourth Corvette of Project 20380 constructed at the ASZ for the Pacific Fleet.

The third and fourth Corvettes of Project 20380, with serial numbers 2103 and 2104 respectively, were constructed under a government contract dated June 4, 2015. The expected completion year was initially set for 2020.

On July 1, 2016, a laying ceremony took place in Komsomolsk-on-Amur for the second corvette Rezkiy under the same contract. The ship was launched on July 1, 2021, and transported to the floating dock Zeya on July 4.

From October 5 to 24, 2021, Rezkiy was moved from Komsomolsk-on-Amur to Vladivostok. However, its factory and state tests extended more than a year than expected.

Distinctively, both the corvettes Hero of the Russian Federation Aldar Tsydenzhapov and Rezkiy feature the new multifunctional radar complex Zaslon. This advanced radar is also installed on two Project 20380 corvettes under construction at the "Severnaya Verf" Shipyard in Saint Petersburg.

ASZ entered into a contract with the Russian Ministry of Defence on December 15, 2020, to build six more corvettes for the Pacific Fleet - two of Project 20380 and four of Project 20385. These ships are slated for commissioning between 2024 and 2028.
