Busha (Ukrainian: Буша, Polish: Busza) is a village in Yampilskyi Raion, Vinnytsia Oblast, Ukraine. It got the status of a city in the early 17th century. In 1629 there were 2.000 people living in this city.
Busha is known in history because of the Peace of Busza that was signed in this village between the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth and the Ottoman Empire on September 23, 1617. During the mid-17th century, the city, situated in Bracław Voivodeship of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, was also the site of several battles between Poles and Ukrainian Cossacks.
After the destruction of the fortress in November 1654 the city soon lost its status and was degraded to village. The village has several historical monuments such as the ruins of a 15th-16th-century fortress and a town hall.
