The Dovzhanska-Kapitalna Coal Mine (also known by its Russian name, Dolzhanskaya-Kapitalnaya) is an operating underground anthracite coal mine in Luhansk 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]


The map below shows the location of the mine, near Sverdlovsk (Dovzhansk), in Sverdlovsk (Dovzhansk) Raion, Luhansk Oblast, Ukraine. The mine is located within the rebel-controlled territory of the so-called Luhansk People's Republic.
