The Battle of Polonka (Połonka) took place near Polonka during the Polish-Russian War (1658-1667) on June 29, 1660 between Polish-Lithuanian and Russian forces.

Polish-Lithuanian forces under Stefan Czarniecki and Paweł Jan Sapieha forced a Russian retreat through a carefully planned hussar ambush and several tactically effective flanking maneuvers[citation needed]. The Russian defeat also meant they had to abandon the siege of Lyakhavichy (Lachowicze).
