KRASNOYARSK, April 1 (Itar-Tass) —— Population of Russia’s Krasnoyarsk will reach one million in April, the city’s statistics service reports.
There have been nine censuses in the history of the city. It is interesting, that between the censuses the city’s population never declined, but was growing rather quickly. Over past 137 years – from 1897 to 2010 – the population grew by over 36 times. During the national census of 2010, Krasnoyarsk was very close to become a city with a million’s population. The census fixed 975,000.
“The current statistics data demonstrate that over a year the population grew and as of January 1, 2012 it made 998,000 due to migration /by 87.6 percent/ and naturally /12.4 percent,/” the statistics service reported.
Thus, Krasnoyarsk will become Russia’s thirteenth city with a million’s population. The list includes Moscow, St. Petersburg, Novosibirsk, Yekaterinburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Samara, Omsk, Kazan, Chelyabinsk, Rostov-On-Don, Ufa and Volgograd.
Krasnoyarsk is located on the Yenisei River. It is the third largest city in Siberia after Novosibirsk and Omsk. The total area of the city, including suburbs and the river area, is 348 square kilometres.
