Today Donetsk is a great industrial and business centre, industrial heart of Ukraine. The year of its foundation is traditionally believed to be 1869 when entrepreneur from Wales John James Hughes built here and exploited steel-smelting factory and several coal mines. Soon after this working village Yuzivka was founded that over the years turned into a city with 50-thousand population.
