Poland ruled Volhynia until the late 18th century, when Poland was partitioned by the Prussian, Austrian, and Russian empires. After the partition, Volhynia was a gubernia (province) of the Russian Empire until 1919 when western Volhynia rejoined Poland. In 1945 the entire Volhynia Gubernia was absorbed into the Soviet Union, becoming Volhynia oblast, The western part of the old gubernia is now in Ukraine with a small part of northern Volhynia in Belarus. Major cities and towns in and around Volhynia include Zhitomir (the former capital), Rovno, Lutsk, Kovel, Berdichev, and Novograd-Volinsk.

The town [Ludwipol] was founded in 1708 after Hubków, 4 km to the east of Sosnove, and was destroyed during the Swedish invasion of Poland during the Great Northern War. Between WWI and WWII, Ludwipol was a capital of the Ludwipol gmina in the region of Volhynia with a mostly Jewish population. The Wójt for the gmina during this inter-war period was Marian Chołodecki. Sometime during 1944 the entire town of Ludwipol was burned to the ground in retalition for the killing of some German soldiers by area partisans. The town was rebuilt and renamed Sosnove.
