The first CH is a gutteral as in Chanukah, so Nakhatovich might be a better spelling. In Cyrillic characters it would look like NAXATOB*4, where * looks like a backwards N and the top of the 4 is open.
Googling it in Cyrillic gives a number of people with this name, including some in Ukraine. To find out what records exist >from Kremenchug, search the database at
