Poltavskaya (Russian: Полта́вская) is a rural locality (a stanitsa) and the administrative center of Krasnoarmeysky District of Krasnodar Krai, Russia, located on the Kuban River, 65 kilometers (40 mi) west of Krasnodar. Population: 26,490 (2010 Census);[1] 28,639 (2002 Census);[2] 23,788 (1989 Census).[3]


Founded in 1794, it is one of the first forty settlements of Kuban Cossacks in the area. In 1932-1933, the whole locality was claimed by the Black boards of shame a settlement award for failure to cooperate with the state policies. During that time hundreds of local families died due to hunger as they were not allowed to leave their residence. Later the rest of population was forcefully moved to the northern regions of Russia (to what now is the Komi Republic) for continuing sabotage, and it was re-settled by the families of the Soviet military. At the same time, it was renamed Krasnoarmeyskaya (Красноарме́йская). The original name was returned in the 1990s.
