Telmanove Raion (Ukrainian: Тельманівський район, Telmanivs’kyi raion) is one of the 18 administrative raions (a district) of Donetsk Oblast, located in southeastern Ukraine. The administrative center of the district is located in the urban-type settlement of Telmanove. Population: 29,550 (2013 est.)[3]


As the result of the 1951 Polish–Soviet territorial exchange, the Soviet authorities deported and resettled approximately 400 families of Boykos from the former Nyzhni Ustryky Raion of Drohobych Oblast that was transferred to Poland (previously a part of Bieszczady County).

On 9 December 2014, the Verkhovna Rada, Ukraine's national parliament, changed the boundaries and total area of the Telmanove Raion to encompass 812.92 km2 (313.87 sq mi). The district's administration buildings and government was moved to the Myrne urban-type settlement following the events surrounding the War in Donbass.[1][2]

A small part of the raion on the west bank of the Kal'mius river is over ukrainian army control, from the north city of Starohnativka to the south city of Mykolaivka.


The Telmanove borders Novoazovsk Raion to its south, Volodarske Raion to its southwest, Volnovakha Raion to its west, Starobesheve Raion to its north. To the east of the Telmanove Raion stretches the international Russia-Ukraine border.

Administrative divisions

The district is divided into three settlement councils and twelve rural councils.
