History[edit]

The History of the "Donetsk coal basin began in 1700 with the decree by "Peter I to search for ore deposits, leading to the development of Lysychansk - "the cradle of "Donbas." This type of coal mining lead to "pit heaps.

Previously existing settlements in the area around Lysychansk were completely destroyed by the Muscovy punitive expedition against the "Bulavin Rebellion. After the suppression of the uprising the area was resettled with Voronove (founded by Khokhlov's Cossacks), Syrotyne (Popov's and Sirotin's Cossacks), Borivske (partly settled by former residents of the burned the Borovskaya "Sloboda), Metiolkine (Metelnikov's Cossacks) and Smolianynove (Smolkin's Cossacks).

During the "2014 pro-Russian conflict in Ukraine the town was captured early April 2014 by "pro-Russian separatists.[5][6] On 22 July 2014 Ukrainian "Ukrinform reported that the separatists "massively leave Lysychansk" with "seized cars from the population and in parking lots;" Russian "ITAR-TASS reported the same day that the separatists had "decided to leave the town in order to save the population and stop clashes." This was mainly because their defeat in the "Siege of Sloviansk and the evacuation of "Kramatorsk made holding the city untenable.[7][8] The next day heavy fighting continued around the town while the "Ukrainian National Guard and the "Ukrainian army released a statement that stated "the military plan to free Lysychansk, "Luhansk region, from terrorist groups in the near future."[9][10] On 24 July 2014 the Ukrainian army claimed its troops had entered Lysychansk and its Col. Andriy Lysenko stated "We will take the town, and the road will be open to "Horlivka, then "Donetsk."[11][12] On 25 July 2014, Ukrainian forces secured the city from the pro-Russian separatists.[13]
