The Mayor of Donetsk, Kulemzin, said that about 600 thousand people currently live in the city.
DONETSK, March 13 – RIA Novosti. Mayor Alexei Kulemzin told RIA Novosti that about 600 thousand people currently live in Donetsk, while before 2014 its population reached almost one million.
He noted that the exact population can be given by census, which has not been conducted for a long time, therefore these figures are conditional and calculated from indirect indicators.
“The city continues to live. People live in all areas, even under bombardment,” the mayor said.
The mayor said that the population of Donetsk from time to time increased or decreased “for example, in connection with payments to the Russian Federation, in connection with the intensification of hostilities or, conversely, in connection with a recession.”
“There’s no need to mention a ‘calm’ in recent months, though,” he admitted.
A woman was injured during the bombing of Donetsk by Ukrainian soldiers.
