Avdiivka (Ukrainian: Авдіївка Ukrainian pronunciation: [ɑu̯ˈɟijiu̯kɑ], Russian: Авдеевка) is a city of oblast significance in Donetsk Oblast (province) of Ukraine. The city is located in center of the region just north from the city of Donetsk. Avdiivka is best known for its big Avdiivka Coke Plant. Population: 35,128 (2013 est.)[1].

Starting Mid-April 2014 pro-Russian separatists captured several towns in Donetsk Oblast;[2][3] including Avdiivka. On 21 July 2014, Ukrainian forces reportedly secured the city from separatists who rejected the violent ousting of the elected Ukrainian President.[4][5] This claim was repeated the next day.[6] Ukrainian forces kept control of Avdiivka, which became a frontline city and frequently shelled.[7][8]
