HistoryEdit

Since 2014, the raion has been controlled by forces of the Luhansk People's Republic.[2] On 7 October 2014, to facilitate the governance of Luhansk Oblast, the Verkhovna Rada on 7 October 2014 made some changes in the administrative divisions, so that the localities in the government-controlled areas were grouped into districts. In particular, the urban-type settlement of Chornukhyne was transferred from Perevalsk Raion to Popasna Raion.[3] The list below contains LNR-controlled areas as well.
