This appears to be town Rovnoye [Rus], currently known as Rivne in Yelizavetgrad (later Kirovograd) in Kherson Guberniya, Ukraine at 48°15' N 31°45' E
It should not be confused with the larger town/provincial seat of Wolhynia Province - Rowno (currently also known as Rivne) at 50°37' N 26°14' E
Conflicting forms that were filled from 1913 to 1940 could not be related to Wolhynia's Rivne since this towns from 1922 till 1939 was located in Poland and was known as Równe, capital of Poland Wołyń województwo.
