In the middle of the 15th century, the territory around modern Ivankiv was called "Zemlya Trudinivska" (Trudinivska Land). It was a property of Kiev boyar Olehnja Juhnovich. In 1524 King of Poland Sigismund I the Old gave this land to Kiev Burgess Tishko Proskura.[2] In 1589 Ivan Proskura became the owner of this land. The town was founded in 1589 and named after Ivan Proskura. At first it was called "Ivaniv" and "Ivanivka" but later changed to "Ivankiv".[3] At the beginning of the 17th century, Crimean Tatars made four military campaigns on Polesia, and as a result, many people in Ivankiv were killed, taken prisoner and sold into slavery.

On 30 May 1645, the forces of Grand Crown Hetman Stanisław Koniecpolski attacked Ivankiv, which at that time belonged to Olizar Wołczkiewicz.


Located in the middle of the southern area of its raion, Ivankiv lies between Kiev and Pripyat. It is located 42 miles (68 km) south from the Chernobyl power plant, with the entrance to the exclusion zone being located 20 miles (32 km) north, at Dytiatky. Ivankiv town was not as affected by the Chernobyl disaster compared to other towns.
