History[edit]

The Jewish population was important in the town. During World War II, the Germans occupied the town and kept the Jews prisoners in a ghetto. In May 1942, hundreds of Jews are murdered in mass executions perpetrated by an Einsatzgruppen.[2]

2017 munitions explosion[edit]

On 26 September 2017, at about 10:00 pm (19:00 UTC), the munitions depot for the Ukainian Army, just south of the town, blew up causing extensive damage to nearby houses and other buildings. This was implied (if not claimed) to be Russian "saboutage" by Ukrainian authorities, including President Petro Poroshenko and Prime Minister Volodymyr Groysman.[3]
