It may be Wolochysk, railway station on former border with Austrian empire in the

Volochisk was a large Jewish town (over three thousand Jewish residents in 1900),
and it was not located in Western Ukraine but in the Russian Empire
Starokonstantinov uyezd of Kamenetsk [Podolskiy].

On the other side of the border Zbruch River, the sister town of Volochisk,
Podvolochisk (Polish: Podwoloczyska) is situated in the Skalat region of Tarnopol
Province of the Eastern Galicia.
