The one-domed church was built in 1762 near Pushkarevka village with help of the colonel I. Chernyak. Today the church is rather ruined — collapsed arches, peeled plaster, broken doors and windows, destroyed decoration and damaged brickwork.
The Ascension church is the unique example of monumental stone architecture of XVIII century; it belongs to the second period of the Ukrainian Renaissance architecture development.
There are some materials, which say that there is a tomb of Motrya under the church fence — the daughter of the general judge Vasily Kochubey and beloved of the hetman Ivan Mazepa. The tent of Mazepa and Cossacks’ reserve were placed right here during the Great Battle of Poltava.
Today the church is situated near the modern Poltava district Polovky.
