Chernushka (Russian: Черну́шка) is a town and the administrative center of Chernushinsky District of Perm Krai, Russia, located in the south of the krai on the Bystry Tanyp River, which is 230 kilometers (140 mi) south of Perm. Population: 33,272 (2010 Census);[1] 35,713 (2002 Census);[3] 34,835 (1989 Census).[4]


Chernushka was first mentioned in 1858 as a village with four households that had existed since 1854.[citation needed] In 1869, the number of households increased to thirty-five.

The construction of the Kazan–Yekaterinburg railway during 1913–1920 played an important role in the development of the village. A settlement for the railway builders, which shared the same name, was established near the village. During the Civil War, the area of what is now Chernushinsky District saw heavy fighting along the railway and in the settlement itself.

In 1925, the administrative center of the district was transferred from Ryabki to Chernushka because Ryabky was too far from the railway. Consequently, the district itself was renamed Chernushinsky. However, the district's administration did not move to Chernushka until 1930.

The following years saw an increase of industrial construction. After World War II, Chernushka was granted work settlement status. The discovery of oil boosted Chernushka's development, as several oil plants were built in 1958. In 1966, Chernushka was granted town status.[citation needed]

The town's economy is based on oil extraction and refining industry, the production of construction materials, and the food industry. It is a major transportation hub in southern Perm Krai.
