Zolote (Ukrainian: Золотé, Russian: Золотóе) is a city in Popasna Raion, Luhansk Oblast (region) of Ukraine. Population: 14,572 (2013 est.)[2].

On 7 October 2014, to facilitate the governance of Luhansk Oblast, the Verkhovna Rada made some changes in the administrative divisions, so that the localities in the government-controlled areas were grouped into districts. In particular, the towns of Hirske and Zolote and the urban-type settlements of Nyzhnie and Toshkivka were transferred from Pervomaisk Municipality to Popasna Raion.[3] The list below contains LNR-controlled areas as well.
