 Donets Basin

The Donets Basin, known commonly as the Donbas, is a historical, economic and cultural region of Eastern Ukraine and southwest Russia. A coal mining area since late 19th century, it has become a heavily industrialised territory suffering from urban decay and industrial pollution.


The Donbas Euroregion covers the Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts of Ukraine, and also Rostov Oblast of the Russian Federation.


Donbas is currently the most densely populated of all the regions of Ukraine (excluding the capital city of Kiev). The city of Donetsk is considered the unofficial capital of Donbas.
