Siversk (Ukrainian: Сі́верськ; Russian: Се́верск, tr. Seversk; until 1973: Yama [Я́ма; Я́ма]) is a city in the Artemivsk Raion of Donetsk Oblast (province) of Ukraine situated 99 km north of Donetsk. Population: 12,145 (2013 est.)[1]; 12,608 (2010).[2]

There are some industrial factories located within the raion, notably the Stroidetal brick factory. Siversk is a former sovhoz by the name of Yamskyi. The town was founded in 1913 because of the operation of the dolomite mine near the railway station of Yama built in 1910. The town received city status in 1961 and was renamed Siversk in 1973.

On 10 July 2014, Ukrainian forces reportedly secured the town from pro-Russian separatists.[3]
