Michael Ouschkoff (or Uschkoff) was an aero inventor. On his British patent he said he was proprietor of Landgut, "Roshdestwenskoje", Government and District of Samara, in the Empire of Russia.

"Roshdestwenskoje" probably refers to a place in the Caucasus, north of Georgia, that was settled by German speakers starting in the 1860s.[1] "Landgut" means "estate" in German, and this may not be the name of a place but a description.

Present-day Samara Oblast further east, north of the western edge of Kazakhstan, and Samara may have referred to a larger region back then that included the Caucasus.
