Julian Coal Mine


It was established in Piekary Śląskie after World War II. The patron of the mine, which was opened in 1954, was Julian Marchlewski, an activist from Włocławek, also known as "Karski", "Kujawski", or "Baltazar of Kujawy". At the beginning of July 1999, a part of the property and the mining area of the Julian Coal Mine mine was transformed into the Piekary Mining Plant. In January 2012, it became the Piekary Coal Mine.

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.

Military trucks and heavy equipment rush to nearby Bakhmut every day.
