Encyclopedia > Dniepr

The Dnieper River (Belarusian: Дняпро/Dnyapro; Russian: Днепр/Dnepr; Ukrainian: Днiпро/Dnipro; Polish: Dniepr; Latin: Borysthenes, Danaper) is a river (2290 km length) which flows from Russia through Belarus and then Ukraine. In all three countries it has essentially the same name, albeit pronounced differently, so it can be also called Dniepr, Dnepr, Dniapro or Dnipro.

The Dnieper finds its source in Valday hills (north Russia) and runs south eventually flowing into the Black Sea. 115 km of its length serves as a natural border between Belarus and Ukraine. Approximately the last 800 km of the river is a chain of almost consecutive reservoirs.


These reservoirs are: Kyivs'ke (922 km≤), Kanivs'ke (582 km≤), Kremenchuts'ke (2,252 km≤), Dniprodzerzhins'ke (567 km≤), Zaporiz'ke (410 km≤), and Kakhovs'ke (2,155 km≤). The dams forming these are used to generate hydroelectric power, providing around 10% of Ukraine's electricity.
