Surnames which end with -enko are ethnic Ukrainian. Of course, the Ukraine has been under Russian influence, and indeed, occupation, time and time again over the centuries. And borders have often changed. The only way you could find out is to find the shipping records on which your first ancestors travelled. Hopefully, it will give a village or town origin. Their death certificates might say something as well. All the best.
