Recently, Dmitry wrote about Yelisevetgrad and said the place was
renamed by the Soviets to Kirovograd. I had the notion the more recent
name is Kirovohrad and it was located in the gubernia of Cherson. Could
someone inform me regarding which name is correct?
You've probably received a ton of answers by now, since I'm a little late
in reading my email. I had a similar proplem with a place spelled either
Gorodishche or Horodishche. I finally concluded that a Cyrillic equivalent to "G" is pronounced as "H".

If you receive any more scientific explanation, please forward a copy to me.
