Prolisky (Ukrainian: Проліски) is a settlement on the eastern edge of the city of Kiev,[2] in the Boryspil district of Ukraine.[3]

The name of the village is derived from the Ukrainian word "Пролісок", which can be translated as "snowdrop" or "Galanthus".

The local council is located in Shchaslyve, a neighboring village located on the opposite side of the Boryspil Highway, which connects Kiev and the Boryspil International Airport and is part of Highway M-03, Kyiv-Kharkiv. Several big projects have been planned in the area because of the UEFA Euro 2012, including the construction of the new Business Park "Prolisky" and the Boryspil Plaza (http://www.boryspilplaza.com/). The area is home to the Ukrainian soccer club FC Knyazha Shchaslyve. The new Master Plan of the development of the local council area projects the growth of the population in Prolisky-Schalyve to 14,200 people.[4]
