Kreminna (Ukrainian: Кремінна; Russian: Кременная) is a city in the Sievierodonetsk Raion of the Luhansk Oblast of Ukraine. Before 2020, it was the administrative center of the former Kreminna Raion.

In March 2022, the pro-Russian mayor Volodymyr Struk who supported Vladimir Putin’s invasion of Ukraine, was found shot dead in the street after having been kidnapped from his home.[1][2] On 19 April 2022, the city was captured by Russian military forces during the invasion.[3][4]
