Administratively, it has been the centre of Donetsk Oblast, while historically, it is the unofficial capital and largest city of the larger economic and cultural Donets Basin (Donbas) region.

The Donetsk People's Republic (DPR or DNR) (Russian:Доне́цкая Наро́дная Респу́блика, tr.Donétskaya Naródnaya Respúblika;IPA:[dɐˈnʲɛtskəjə nɐˈrodnəjə rʲɪˈspublʲɪkə], Ukrainian:Донецька Народна Республіка, Donets'ka Narodna Respublika) is an unrecognized state, supported by several rebel groups based in the Donetsk oblast of Ukraine, where it controls territory. In Ukraine, it is considered to be a terrorist organisation. The Donetsk People's Republic is a self-proclaimed state whose existence is unrecognized by the international community, which receives humanitarian and military support from Russia. It was also a constituent state of the self-proclaimed confederation of Novorossiya (referencing the corresponding historical region and its name), and since February 2015 assigned itself the status of successor to the historic self-declared Donetsk–Krivoy Rog Soviet Republic. On 20 May 2015 the leadership of the Federal State of Novorossiya announced the termination of the confederation 'project'.
