Vinnytsia

'''Vinnytsia''' ( .

A historic town known since Middle Ages and a former Soviet Cold War-airbase (Military airbase), Vinnytsia is now an industrial center (particularly, dominated by the Roshen corporation), a growing international IT-outsource center and the main base of the Ukrainian Air Force. The city is also home to the RPC Fort, the largest Ukrainian firearms manufacturer.

Vinnytsia is considered the long-time political base for the current Ukrainian President (President of Ukraine) Petro Poroshenko. He owns a local confectionery (as part of the Roshen Corporation (Roshen)) and was elected member of parliament (Verkhovna Rada) from the local constituency (Vinnytsia II (single-mandate constituency)) for several convocations. However, contrary to some speculations, Poroshenko never lived in the city.
