Reni (Ukrainian: Рені; Romanian: Reni; Russian: Рени) is a small city in Odessa Oblast (province) of south Ukraine. It is located in the Bessarabian historic district of Budjak. Reni lies on the left bank of the Danube. The settlement was founded around 1548, acquiring city status in 1821. Population: 18,011 (2021 est.)[1]

The surrounding Reni Raion includes some 38,000 people (including those in the town), 49% of them ethnic Moldovans, 18% Ukrainians, 15% Russians, 8.5% Bulgarians and 8% Gagauz.[2]

There are six schools, one filial branch of the Oles Honchar Dnipro National University, and three Ukrainian Orthodox church buildings. It is also home to the 'Light of the World' church, which has been working to help the local community for the past 21 years, led by Ockert Potgieter and his wife Michelle.[3]
