The urban-type settlement was founded on 1973 as a company town of the Rivne Nuclear Power Plant. The new town was named in honor of the Soviet intelligence agent, partisan Nikolai Kuznetsov. The plan of the city reflects the ideals of late socialist realism. Part of the city occupies the site of the former village Varash, founded in 1776. Now it is one of the districts in the city.
There are 12 kindergartens, 6 secondary schools, a high school, a music school, college, and a branch of the Kiev Institute of Management in the city.
Three newspapers are published in Varash. In addition, a television station and a radio company are operated here.
