Town in Russia - Markus Family #translation

Gavin Simms

I'm having trouble transcribing the town in Russia Hannah Rachel (my grear-grandmother) and Lena Markus were from.
It reads Wakena, or Ulekena on Lena's, and Veana on Rachel's (not helped by they wrote it in the wrong place and then overwrote). These are from the 1921 UK Census.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
