Historical Outline of Sovereignty over Voronkov
In 1569, Voronkov was part of the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.  It probably came under Russian rule when Kiev was seized in 1775.  In 1900, as part of Russia, it was in the Pereyaslav District, Poltava Gubernia.  In 1930 it was located in the Kiev District, Ukraine SSR. Today it is in Kiev Oblast, Ukraine.
