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]
