Hello Mauricio,
since Zapust means nothing else but wilderness, there were several in Volhynia. The closest one to Olyka (which is appr. 
halfway from Lutsk to Rovno, a bit south of the highway & railway track) seems to be Alt Zapust, a village on the east 
bank of the Styr river some 5 km northeast of Rozhyshche and 59 km northwest of Olyka. According to the 1986 military 
map the colony is now part of the neighboring village Nosachevychi.
