The design was created by L. Ingovatov. Photographs were provided by L. Gavopol’skii. Sievierodonetsk is located in the Luhansk region, on the left bank of the Siverskyi Donets River. The emergence and development of the settlement are closely related to the construction of a local chemical plant. The first foundation stones of the enterprise and the city were laid in 1934. Initially, the workers’ village was called Liskhimstroy.
In late 1950, the village began to be called Sievierodonetsk or Severodonetsk [in Russian]. In 1958, it received the status of a city. By 1965, it was a newly formed but vivacious city around the Lysychansk Chemical Plant. The company was founded in 1951 as a complex for the production of mineral fertilizers. In the mid-1960s, it was one of the largest and newest enterprises in the USSR. It had been working as Azot until recent years. The guide presents the city after numerous
construction projects were released in the early 1960s. The compilers outline city transport, major streets and squares, industrial enterprises, research institutes, schools, healthcare organizations, sports areas and venues, cultural centers, and food industry enterprises. Photographs show the Lysychansk Chemical
Plant under construction, a city bus station, a few workers’ clubs, one of the schools, scenes from a local nursery and a popular cultural center.

According to official sources, 99% of city buildings were destroyed in 2022.

Paper copies are located in LoC, Illinois and California Universities.
