Help Needed Reading Nativity on Census #russia #records



I would be very grateful for some help reading a note on nativity/country of birth on line 30 of the attached census document. I cannot figure out what the word is next to "Russia" on line 30 (Abraham LEVY). Attached is a blown-up copy of the word. This may help me get through a brick wall, as I currently cannot figure out the country of birth for my Abraham LEVY (my GGG paternal grandfather).

Many thanks,

My best reading is either Seoto or Leoto.  I hope that is helpful.

If the word is actually Leuta, rather than Leoto, it could mean Lithuania.
