History

The area was settled by the Zaporozhian Cossacks in the 1740s. In 1788, Catherine II of Russia granted the region to a landlord Basil Popowski, a Russian general whose name Vasylivka as his manor still bears. His grandson built the Popov Manor House there. The residence was visited by Anton Makarenko in 1925.

In January 1989, according to the census, population was 16,325.

In January 2013, population was 13,996.[3]

On 7 March 2022, Vasylivka was captured by Russian forces during the 2022 Russian invasion of Ukraine in the Southern Ukraine offensive.[1]
