Pogromni is old and eroded with a single glacier on its flank and base. Eruptions have been attributed to it in 1795, 1796, 1826, 1827, and 1830, but historic eruptions attributed to it may have come from nearby Westdahl volcano.
The volcano's name comes from the Russian Погромный, meaning "characterised by violent outbreak." This naming refers to a volcanic eruption, but shares the same etymology as pogrom, a Russian word referring to violent riots against an ethnic group.
