Zabolotiv (Ukrainian: Заболотів, Polish: Zabłotów, Yiddish: זאַבלאטאוו Zablotov) is an urban-type settlement in Sniatyn Raion of Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast in Western Ukraine. Population: 4,056 (2016). In 2001, the population was 4,129.
Starting from 1790, a growing Jewish community became an important part of local life. At the beginning of the 20th century, antisemitic unrest culminated in the first pogrom in Zabolotiv in 1903. Later, German Nazis exterminated one part of the Jewish population while others managed to flee to the United States and Israel.
