Like in Luhansk and any other city of Ukraine, stray dogs are a problem in the city.
There are dozens of them in the city streets and lanes, especially inside the blocks.
Use the same common sense as you would in any big city.
A pack of hungry stray dogs can surround you and start barking at you, if they don't like something about you.
If you have no food to offer them, make an abrupt movement to lower your arm to the ground as if to grab a stone to throw at them. That will help or, on the contrary, drive them even wilder... You never know.
A barking dog does not bite?
Anyhow, a barking dog CAN bite after he is through with barking, you know...
Keep your eyes open please and do not find yourself among the victims of our stray dogs' anger.Stray dogs at the city market in Syeverodonetsk
The city was called after the river Seversky Donets.
The city is located not far from its left bank.
The river itself is called Donets ("Little Don") for it is the left tributary of the Don, a great Russian river flowing into the Sea of Azov.
The name "Seversky" implies our very ancient history when nomadic tribes of Severtsy used to inhabit the banks of the river.
So the city name is connected both with the river on which it stands and the river name is connected with the ancient nomadic tribe of the Severtsy.
The city is going to celebrate its 75th anniversary soon.
Here is the front page of a booklet dedicated to the 70th jubilee of the city (in Russian).
