My Mom, aunt, and other relatives, also made what they called Pirogi (or Pirogen as the German variant to signify the plural) but they were normally filled with a special cottage cheese more like curd. Maybe different regions used different terms for these dishes. My family came from near Lublin, Poland.
I thought the cabbage rolls was a German dish my mom made. I never liked the Borscht though. What is missing on this menu is a sweet pastry - Poonchkie (or Punschken as the Germans seemed to call them).

Here is what is shown:
Borscht (beet soup)
Golubzi (holopshi? cabbage rolls)
Mlinzi (this one I don't recognize)
Pirogi (fruit filled pockets)
Wareniki (veronike - cottage cheese filled pockets)

I had always thought of Pirogi and Wareniki as simply variations of the 
same thing but here they appear to differentiate between fruit and other
