is there way to copy file or folder to remote machine with the same address as current directory where I'm running scp from defining only file's name, eg:

[user@machine current_location]$scp ./file_or_folder remote:$/

I assume $/ is what you wish would translate to your current location? You can achieve this with

$ scp ./file_or_folder "remote:$(pwd)"

$( cmd ) is a command substitution. It runs the command (here pwd to print the current directory) and then 'replaces' itself with the command output.
