The site 2 at Vita-Poshtova, the easternmost site of the Linear Band Pottery culture (LBPC), is situated 8,5 km southwest from Kyiv, capital of Ukraine. It is the northern border of the forest-steppe zone. The LBPC settlement was discovered during the rescue excavations. Pottery fragments show all characteristic features for the music note phase of the LBPC in its Central European range. A set of remains from the described site is not numerous, nevertheless it is very important. It allows us to assert a far-reaching expansion of LBPC groups of people from Volhynia to the Kyiv region, which is very distant from the core area of this culture. Therefore the problem of contacts between its population and communities of the local cultures (Bug-Dniester and Prip'at-Neman) arises.
