History

The village was first mentioned in 1864. On 25 August 1941, it was occupied by Nazi German troops, and the population that left the occupied area, resisted to them. 154 villagers of those who fought on the Soviet side, were awarded with Soviet orders and medals.

Part of the former Chernobyl Raion until 1988, when it was disestablished after the 1986 nuclear accident, it is one of the few villages of this former district outside the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone.
