Əbil (formerly Ukrainskiye Otruba, 26 Bakı Komissarı) is a village and municipality in the Saatly Rayon of Azerbaijan. It has a population of 887.[citation needed] Ukrainskiye Otruba was founded in the nineteenth century by Russian-speaking immigrants from what is now Ukraine.[1] By the 1950s, most Russian speakers had left the village and it was resettled by ethnic Azeris from neighbouring villages. As of 2016, only one Russian-speaker, a 90-year-old man, still lived in Əbil.[2]
