Notes:

  1. Combination of letters "зг" is transliterated as "zgh" (e.g., Згорани – Zghorany, Розгон Rozghon) as opposed to "zh" – the equivalent of the Ukrainian letter "ж".
  2. Soft sign and the apostrophe are not reproduced in Latin.
  3. Transliteration of first and last names of individuals and geographical names is carried out by way of letter-for-letter representation in Latin.
