Kotsiubynske (Ukrainian: Коцюбинське) is a town in the Kiev Oblast (province) of Ukraine, subordinated to city of Irpin. The town is an enclave and located outside the borders of Kiev Oblast, instead fully surrounded by the nation's capital Kiev (Svyatoshyne Raion). Population: 15,263 (2013 est.).
The settlement appeared in 1900 as a khutir Berkovets during the construction of the railroad Kiev - Kovel (1897-1903). The khutir consisted of a single homestead which served as a residence for local forest rangers in the Bilychi Woods. The settlement belonged to the Kiev-Podil Administration of State Property. In 1903 near the khutir was constructed a passing loop which later transformed into a train station Bilychi. The station was named after a village that was located in close vicinity (today, part of Kiev city).
On February 11, 1941 the khutir Berkovets was given a status of an urban settlement Kotsiubynske.
