Slavo-Serbia ( , Serbian: Славеносрбија, Slavenosrbija, archaic Serbian name: Славено-Сербія) was a territory of Imperial Russiamarker between 1753 and 1764. It was located by the right bank of the Donets Rivermarker between the Bakhmut (Бахмут) and Lugan (Лугань) rivers, which constitutes the territories of present-day Luhansk Oblast of Ukrainemarker and Rostov Oblast of Russiamarker. The administrative centre of Slavo-Serbia was Slovianoserbskmarker.

History

By the decree of the Senate of May 29, 1753, the free lands of this area were offered for settlement to Serbs, Bulgarians, Romanians, Hungarians and other Balkan peoples of Orthodox Christian denomination in order to ensure frontier protection and development of this part of Southern steppes.

Slavo-Serbia was directly governed by Russia's Governing Senate. The settlers eventually formed the Bakhmut hussar regiment in 1764. Also in 1764, Slavo-Serbia was transformed into the Donetsmarker uyezd of Yekaterinoslav Governorate (now in Dnipropetrovs'ka oblast', Ukrainemarker).

Demographics

The province had ethnically diverse population that included Serbs, Vlachs, Hungarians and others. In 1755, the population of Slavo-Serbia numbered 1,513 inhabitants (of both genders), while in 1763, the population numbered 3,992 male inhabitants, of whom only 378 were Serbs.
