Slavo-Serbia or Slaveno-Serbia ( Ukrainian: Слов'яносербія, romanizedSlov'yanoserbiya; Russian: Славяносербия, romanizedSlavyanoserbiya; Serbian: Славеносрбија / Slavenosrbija or Славосрбија / Slavosrbija; Slavo-Serbian or Slaveno-Serbian: Славо-Сербія or Славено-Сербія), was a territory of Imperial Russia between 1753-64. It was located by the right bank of the Donets River between the Bakhmutka River (Бахмут) and Luhan (Лугань) rivers. This area today constitutes the territories of present-day Luhansk Oblast and Donetsk Oblast of Ukraine. The administrative centre of Slavo-Serbia was Bakhmut (Bahmut).

History

By the decree of the Senate of May 29, 1753, the free lands of this area were offered for settlement to Serbs, Vlachs ( Wallachians), Bulgarians, Greeks and other Balkan peoples of Orthodox Christian denomination to ensure frontier protection and development of this part of the steppes. [1]

Slavo-Serbia was directly governed by Russia's Governing Senate and College of War. The settlers eventually formed the Bakhmut hussar regiment in 1764. Also in 1764, Slavo-Serbia was transformed into the Donets uyezd of Yekaterinoslav Governorate (now in Dnipropetrovs'ka oblast', Ukraine). Commandants of Slavo-Serbia were Colonels Rajko Depreradović and Jovan Šević. These Serbian colonels led their soldiers in various Russian military campaigns; in peacetime they kept the borderlands, along with the Cossacks, free from incursions by other states.[ citation needed]

Demographics

The province had ethnically diverse population that included Serbs, Vlachs ( Wallachians), and others. In 1755, the population of Slavo-Serbia numbered 1,513 inhabitants (of both genders). In 1756, in the regiment of Jovan Šević, there were 38% Serbs, 23% Vlachs, and 22% others. [2] In 1763, the population of Slavo-Serbia numbered 3,992 male inhabitants, of whom only 378 were Serbs.
