Info about possible town in Russia:

Several Census say Kiev which was a Gubernia in what is today Ukraine.

Possible town for Luchansky's:
Kivshuvata, also spelled Kovshevataya; Koshevatoye; Kovscevata, Kivsuvata
60 miles South of Kyyiv (Ukraine)

Records that list that town:
Kochvepy (Rebecca Luchansky's marriage record)
Kusovate (Samuel Luchansky's Ellis Island ship record)
Koshowaty (Joseph Dean's WWI draft card)

The Ellis Island record, lists Samuel Luchansky's brother living in Tararzoze.  I think that is Tarashcha, 7.8 miles from Kivsuvata. It is spelled Tarasca on Mapquest.  Also Morris Luchansky's WWI draft card says he is born in Tararsha (I don't know how he is related.)

Joseph Rutberg's Ellis Island record says he is from Bialyczerkow.  I think thie is Bila Tserkva, which is near Kivsuvata and Tarashcha.

From http://www.lemko.org/lih/indexuke.html town names with KOI-8 cyrillic:
Kivshuvata * Kiвшуватa, KIYIV oblast district
Tarashcha * Tapaщa, KIYIV
