As a Welsh woman who had been fascinated by the history of South Walian John Hughes' founding of Yusovka/Donetsk, I was thrilled to be able to visit this statue of the founder of the city when travelling through the Donbas by horse (The Long Horse Ride) in 2011 (not 2022 as I have been forced to enter!). However, the labelling of this monument on Trip Advisor is not correct, as can be seen by the photo I attach. The statue is of founder John Hughes himself, who died in 1889 (as shown on the plaque). It is not of John James Hughes (who died in 1917) who was the eldest of John Hughes' four sons, the others being Arthur David, Ivor and Albert Llewellyn. They all worked in some capacity for their father's New Russia Company in Donetsk, John James Hughes becoming managing director after his father John Hughes' death. I understand that this statue was still standing a couple of months ago, in spite of the troubles.

Monument to John Hughes - installed in Donetsk in honor of John James Hughes - Welsh industrialist, founder of Yuzovka (modern Donetsk). The monument author the sculptor Alexander Mitrofanovich Rapid.
Monument interesting in its style.
Those who are interested in history,I think it will be interesting to show the founder of Yuzovka.
