Perevalsk Raion (Ukrainian: Перевальський район) was a raion (district) in the eastern Ukrainian province of Luhansk. The raion was abolished on 18 July 2020 as part of the administrative reform of Ukraine, which reduced the number of raions of Luhansk Oblast to eight.[1][2] However, since 2014 the raion was not under control of Ukrainian government and has been part of the Luhansk People's Republic[3] which continues using it as an administrative unit.[4] The administrative center of the raion is the city of Perevalsk. The last estimate of the raion population, reported by the Ukrainian government, was 63,064 (2020 est.)[5].

History

Since 2014, the raion has been controlled by forces of the Luhansk People's Republic.[3] 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.[6]
