Poliske (Ukrainian: Поліське) is a former village (a selo) in the Narodychi Raion of Zhytomyr Oblast in northern Ukraine. The village was evacuated in 1990 following the aftermath of the 1986 Chernobyl disaster.

It is located within the "Zone of Absolute (Mandatory) Resettlement" of the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, which is an officially designated exclusion area around the site of the disaster.


In 1981, the village's population was 150. Administratively, it belonged to Velyki Klishchi Village Council, a local government area in the raion. Following the aftermath of the Chernobyl disaster, the village was evacuated in 1990. At the time, 46 families resided in the village. They were all relocated to the village of Lysivka in the oblast's Popilnia Raion with the support of the government.

On 28 December 1990, the Zhytomyr Oblast Council voted to remove Poliske from the register of populated places. The process was finalized when the Verkhovna Rada of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic published the law on 12 February 1991.
