Voznesensk vicegerency [Ukrainian: Вознесенське намісництво, Voznesenske namisnytstvo; Russian: Вознесенское намесничество, Voznesenskoe namesnichestvo]. An administrative territory set up in 1795 out of a part of Katerynoslav vicegerency and lands recently acquired by the Russian Empire from Poland and Turkey. The capital was at first Novomyrhorod and then Voznesensk. In 1797 the vicegerency was abolished, and its territory was distributed among New Russia gubernia, Kyiv gubernia, and Podilia gubernia.
