    Here is his father’s cousin. He was born in Ukraine.

    His paternal grandparents were Wladimyr Shukoff and Anna.
    Wladymir nationality is “Polish”, although his full name is more Russian than Polish. Anna was Russian.
    His father’s name Igor is also typical Russian/Ukrainian, and not Polish.

    Anyone has any input on his father’s side? Was he Russian? Polish?
