of Königsberg, which had been founded in 1256, was occupied by
the Soviet Army in 1945 and renamed Kaliningrad in 1946.
In the meantime, the name was briefly Russified as Kyonigsberg.
At the 2002 Census, its population was 430,003, an increase from the
401,280 recorded in the 1989 Census.
Its ethnic composition is 77.9% Russians, 8.0% Belarusians, 7.3%
