Slovianoserbsk (Ukrainian: Слов'яносербськ, translit. Slovyanoserbs’k; Russian: Славяносербск) is an urban-type settlement in the Luhansk Oblast (province) of south-eastern Ukraine. It is the administrative center of the Slovianoserbsk Raion (district). As of 2011, its population was 9,127.

In 1764 Slavo-Serbia was transformed into the Donets county and in 1784 the city was renamed into Donetskoye. In 1817 both county and its county seat were changed to Slavianoserbsk. Soon after the Ukrainian independence of 1918, Ukrainian form of Slovianoserbsk was adopted as well.
