Ust-Ilimsk

3.8
Ust-Ilimsk is a town in Irkutsk Oblast, Russia, located on the Angara River. Population: 53,000 (1977).HistoryAn ostrog (fortress) was built on the present site of the town in the 17th century; however, the modern town was not founded until 1966, during the construction of the Ust-Ilimsk Hydroelectric Power Station, which backs up both the Angara and the Ilim Rivers, and, incidentally, flooded the old town of Ilimsk, which was located further up the Ilim. The region was the site of one of the most notorious gulags of the 1930s; tens of thousands died in the camp.Town status was granted to it in 1973; the dam was completed in 1980.Administrative and municipal statusWithin the framework of administrative divisions, Ust-Ilimsk serves as the administrative center of Ust-Ilimsky District, even though it is not a part of it. As an administrative division, it is incorporated separately as the Town of Ust-Ilimsk—an administrative unit with the status equal to that of the districts. As a municipal division, the Town of Ust-Ilimsk is incorporated as Ust-Ilimsk Urban Okrug.
