History[edit]

The history of the city starts with the decision to built near a settlement Zuyivka a thermal power plant as part of the Soviet GOELRO plan in 1929. The name for the new settlement around the plant was given after the plant as "ZuHRES", Zuyivka Government Raion Electrical Station. The first power plant was built in 1932 and later there was built another plant in 1980s.

During WWII, the Germans occupied the town and murdered local Jews as well as communists in mass executions in a ravine outside the city.[2]
