500 biggest cities in Europe continent

A "small" continent but with lots of cities; can you name them all? An extreme quiz of this type. Populations are estimated by Jan-2019. The numbers represent city propers, not metro areas. The letter k means "thousand". Source: citypopulation.de, wikipedia
Including some (but might not all) cities bordering Europe and Asia
Prefered Russian spelling is ch instead of "tch", and Ukrainian--Ch instead of "Č"
Certain cities on islands are counted towards Africa instead of Europe continent!

The quiz will be updated for the 2020 population. Alternative spellings are fine but let's keep the timing period short to keep it fair with the previous players. Even I - the author - bearly reach the 90's percentile ranking!

What about 5 minutes longer, as it is just not doable in thirty minutes.

In this version of the quiz, Cork's population is just a bit lower than the 500th city on this list!
