Vilcha is an abandoned Ukrainian settlement and former town in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone, part of Poliske Raion, Kiev Oblast. It lies 17 km from Poliske, 40 km from Krasiatychi (the raion's administrative seat), 43 km from Pripyat, 44 km from Ovruch and 95 km from Slavutych.
Vilcha was a stop on the Ovruch to Chernihiv line and now lies close to one of the western checkpoints of the Exclusion Zone. Vilcha was resettled by small number of samosely a few years after the evacuation.
In the aftermath of the 1986 accident at the Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant, 45 km from Vilcha, the town was not actually included into the "Exclusion Zone" for a further seven years. However, during 1993 to 1996, most of the 2,000 residents moved to Kharkiv Oblast, where they founded a New Vilcha (709 km away), few kilometres south of the town of Vovchansk (map below).
