Population size of Donetsk returned to pre-war level
Donetsk, November 28. The number of Donetsk inhabitants has almost returned lately to the level prior to the outset of armed hostilities in Donbass, more than 300 thousand people came back to the city – the Mayor of Donetsk Igor Martynov. "As for August, 2014 — then there remained 500-520 thousand residents in the city, now we have 850 thousand, approximately 300 thousand have returned. People gradually come back. You can observe the number of cars in the city. 100 thousand missing are those who can afford staying somewhere else. This share of the population was gone and, to my mind, for good," noted Martynov. He added that over almost three months after the truce had been declared on September 1, the situation in the city remained rather stable, but shellings on the outskirts in the near-front localities remained as before.
