Leninsk-Kuznetsky (Russian: Ле́нинск-Кузне́цкий), known as Kolchugino (Кольчу́гино) until 1925,[citation needed] is a city in Kemerovo Oblast, Russia, located on both banks of the Inya River (Ob's tributary). Population: 101,666 (2010 Census);[3] 112,253 (2002 Census);[5] 165,487 (1989 Census);[6] 128,000 (1972); 83,000 (1939); 20,000 (1926).

History[edit]

The first establishment goes back to 1763 with the creation of a village of Kolchugino.[citation needed] The extraction of coal started in 1870 but did not become really intensive until 1912 when there was an infusion of French capital. The agglomeration was renamed Leninsk in 1922, then Leninsk-Kuznetsky in 1925.[citation needed] It was granted town status in 1925.[citation needed]

Administrative and municipal status[edit]

Within the framework of administrative divisions, Leninsk-Kuznetsky serves as the administrative center of Leninsk-Kuznetsky District, even though it is not a part of it.[1] As an administrative division, it is, together with two rural localities, incorporated separately as Leninsk-Kuznetsky City Under Oblast Jurisdiction—an administrative unit with the status equal to that of the districts.[1] As a municipal division, Leninsk-Kuznetsky City Under Oblast Jurisdiction is incorporated as Leninsk-Kuznetsky Urban Okrug.[2]

Economy[edit]

Leninsk-Kuznetsky is one of the main coal mining centers of the Kuznetsk Basin. It is entirely turned towards the extraction of coal. Many mines are within the limits of the city.

Transportation[edit]

The city is on the trunk roads Leninsk-Kuznetsky–Novosibirsk and KemerovoNovokuznetsk and on the railway lines Novosibirsk–Novokuznetsk and Kemerovo–Novokuznetsk.

The city has had a trolleybus network since 1984.
