Interesting too are letters from the 1920s written from Kukkus during the famine at the time where millions of Volga Germans across Russia died during this time. These letters speak of true desperation but also of relief from the Volga Relief Society in the United States. Ships from the US arrived, laden with food for the starving villages. http://kukkus.com/showalbum.php?albumID=7

Kukkus was the first Volga German village in Russia, followed by Schilling and a few others.

The First Settlers arrived in Russia at the port of Oranienbaum on 08 Aug 1766. After a VERY long trip, during which many died, they arrived finally at Kukkus on 26 Jun 1767.
