The Bilozerskaya Coal Mine is an operating underground coal mine in Donetsk Oblast, Ukraine.

According to the Institute for War and Peace Reporting, most Donbas region mines were seized by Russians and pro-Russian rebels in late 2014 and many have endured electricity shortages and flooding ever since. The current output of the Donbas mines, including this one, is no longer transparent, and many are likely non-operational and on hiatus.[1]
