Jaworzno Coal Mine (today it operates as KWK Sobieski Coal Mine)


Founded on the initiative of earl Moszyński in 1792, it belonged to many entities, e.g. Duchy of Warsaw or the Free City of Krakow. In 1999, it was shut, and its assets were taken over by the newly established Sobieski Coal Mine, which is still operating today.

29.37 kilometers – at the time of writing this report, separating Kramatorsk, the temporary capital of the Donetsk Oblast, from the front line. One third of the 220,000 inhabitants remained. In the deserted city you can see mostly soldiers. They head to the front or return from it to rest for a while. The fate of Kramatorsk and eastern Ukraine depends on the outcome of fierce fighting. Military trucks and heavy equipment rush to nearby Bakhmut every day.
