Ruined Airport

The Battles for the Luhansk Airport were part of the Russo-Ukrainian war that that took place in 2014 during the war in eastern Ukraine to establish control over the Luhansk International Airport. Ukrainian paratroopers have been defending the airport since April 2014 in complete encirclement without ground communication. In July, Ukrainian troops broke through to the airport, unblocking it.

As a result of the August offensive of the Russian regular troops, the airport was again encircled. Its buildings were completely destroyed by Russian artillery. On the night of September 1, 2014, Ukrainian defenders left the ruins of the airport, after 146 days of its defense.

In 2016, the badge "For the Defense of Luhansk Airport" was established.
