'''Donetsk''' ( ; former names: '''Oleksandrivka''', '''Yuzivka''', '''Stalinе''', see also: cities' alternative names (Names of European cities in different languages: C-D#D)) is an industrial city in Ukraine on the Kalmius River. Administratively, it is a centre of Donetsk Oblast, while historically, it is the unofficial capital and largest city of the larger economic and cultural Donets Basin (''Donbas'') region. The city of Donetsk is adjacent to another major city of Makiivka and along with other surrounding cities forms a major urban sprawl and conurbation in the region. Donetsk is a major economic, industrial and scientific centre of Ukraine with a high concentration of companies and a skilled workforce.

The city was first mentioned in 1779 as Oleksandrivka, by the Ukrainian cossacks after ruining of the Zaporizka Sich by the Russian Emperatrice Katherine II in 1775. In 1869 Welsh (Wales) businessman, John Hughes (John Hughes (businessman)) constructed a steel plant and several coal mines (coal mining) in the region; the town was thus named '''Yuzivka''' (Юзівка) in recognition of his role in its founding ("Yuz" being a Russian or Ukrainian approximation of Hughes). During Soviet (Soviet Union) times, the city's steel industry was expanded. In 1924 it was renamed ''Stalinе'' (Сталіне), and in 1932 the city became the centre of the Donetsk region. Renamed Donetsk in 1961, the city today remains the centre for Ukraine's coal mining and notable steel industry centre.
