List of historical figures related to the Donetsk region, looks rather sad. There is present communist holy Artem, but there is no John Hughes – the creator of Donetsk industry; stakhanovka Pasha Angelina is present, but well known stakhanovites Makar Mazaj is absent; a famous Russian theatrical man V.I.Nemyrovych-Danchenko is included, but composer Sergei Prokofiev – is not (though he is also a Russian, hence the "national question" everything would be okay). There are no names of the famous singer Anatoly Solovyanenko, fighters for independence of Ukraine Mykola and Nikita Shapoval, human rights activist Oleksa Tychyj, artist Arkhip Kuindzhi. And all those names fame of the Donetsk region.

Donetsk region – the most important industrial region of Ukraine. But there are no sights of our industrial power and technical skill, as well as in Dnipropetrovsk region…
