Richie Baum, Ukraine SIG"s Town Leader for Kyiv has posted the list, both the Russian original and an English list, on the Kiev KehilaLinks website. However, the English list is a "translation" of the surnames and town names instead of a "transliteration". Use caution when reviewing the English list.
