Storojine? County was a county (jude?) of Romania, in Bukovina, with the capital city at Storojine?. The area was incorporated into the Soviet Union in 1940 (after the Soviet occupation of Northern Bukovina) and again in 1944 (after the Soviet occupation of Romania), and has been part of Ukraine since 1991.


Following the Union of Bukovina with Romania decided by the General Congress of Bukovina on 15/28 November 191, the Storojine? County was created on 18 December 1918 by the Decree No. 3715 for the administration of Bukovina.[1]

In 1925, according to the Law of Administrative Unification of 14 June 1925, the territory of the county was enlarged with the former Vc?u?i County and parts of Vijni?a County.

In 1938, the county was abolished and incorporated into the newly formed ?inutul Suceava, together with the counties of Hotin, Suceava, Cern?u?i, Dorohoi, R?d?u?i and Câmpulung.[2]

In 1940, following the Molotov-Ribbentrop Pact and the Soviet ultimatum on 26 June 1940, Northern Bukovina (including the whole Storojine? County) was occupied by the Soviet Union and incorporated into the USSR (Chernivtsi Oblast, Ukrainian SSR). Storojine? County was re-established (as part of the Governorate of Bukovina [ro]) after Northern Bukovina was recovered by Romania in July 1941, following the invasion of the Soviet Union. Nevertheless, in August 1944 the Northern Bukovina was took over again by the Soviet Army and the borders as of 1 January 1941 were confirmed by the 1947 Paris Peace Treaties.


Neighbours of the county were Stanis?awów Voivodeship of Poland to the west, counties of Cern?u?i to the north-east and R?d?u?i to the south.
