Chornukhyne ("Ukrainian: Чорнухине) is an "urban-type settlement in "Popasna Raion ("district) of "Luhansk Oblast in eastern "Ukraine.[2] In the "2001 Ukrainian census, the town's population was 7,782.[2] As of 2011, its population was 6,137.[1]

The "Kalmius and Chornukha Rivers flow through the town.[2] It is located 80 kilometres (50 mi) northeast of "Donetsk.


The territory was first settled in 1600 as the Chornukhynskyi Post ("Ukrainian: Чорнухинський пост) of the Kalmius Palanka of the "Zaporizhian Sich "cossack territory.[2] In 1778, the settlement was a "sloboda, and in 1892 it became a village.[2] It was granted the status of an urban-type settlement in 1938.[2]

On 7 October 2014, to facilitate the governance of Luhansk Oblast, the "Verkhovna Rada made some changes in the administrative divisions, so that the localities in the government-controlled areas were grouped into districts. In particular, Chornukhyne was transferred from "Perevalsk Raion to Popasna Raion.[4]
