On my grandfather's initial papers upon entering the USA in 1905, he states he is from Russia. On his naturalization papers in the early 1930s, he states he is from Poland. Today, he would say he was from Belarus. As others pointed out, there was a change of borders.  I would pay much more attention to the town than the country.
