As per the FAQs about ECS instances:
Question: Can I change the region of an ECS instance?
Answer: No, you cannot change the region of an ECS instance.

You can do the following :-

1.) Create a snapshot and image with the current ECS
2.) Go to your target region, create a new ECS from that image
3.) release the wrong image you created.

Hope this help
