Chornukhyne (Ukrainian: Чорнухине) is an urban-type settlement in Popasna Raion (district) of Luhansk Oblast in eastern Ukraine. In the 2001 Ukrainian census, the town's population was 7,782. As of 2011[update], its population was 6,137.
The territory was first settled in 1600 as the Chornukhynskyi Post (Ukrainian: Чорнухинський пост) of the Kalmius Palanka of the Zaporizhian Sich cossack territory. In 1778, the settlement was a sloboda, and in 1892 it became a village. It was granted the status of an urban-type settlement in 1938.
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.
