Ukrainka is a pearl on the Dnipro

The Ukrainka community is located on the right bank of the Dnipro in the central part of the Kyiv region. The first mention of Ukrainka dates back to the 15th century in the deed of gift of King Sigismund. It is mentioned there as the village of Ignativka.

The community was renamed 4 times to its current name.

The construction of the Trypillia Thermal Power Plant (TPP) in Ukrainka’s territories in the 1960s and 1970s had a decisive influence on the community’s development.

In 1962, a site for the construction of a thermal power plant was approved on the right bank of the Dnipro near the village of Trypillia. In September 1972, the last sixth power unit was put into operation and the capacity of the Trypillia TPP reached the design value of 1,800 MW.

Since then, the construction of the city as we see it now has begun.
