- This is an alternative spelling/synonym like with many Belarusian or Ukrainian names. In Belarusian Горкі, in Russian Горки. Gomel and Homel (Гомель), Kharkov and Kharkiv (Харьков, Харків), Gorlovka and Horlivka (Горловка - Горлівка) are based on Russian and Belarusian/Ukrainian pronunciation or spelling. Historically names were transliterated from Russian but many are now being renamed. --Anatoli 00:25, 17 February 2010 (UTC)
