These are very difficult maps to use. Familiarity with Poltova coordinates, Cyrillic script, etc. are required and it appears that the east / west coordinates don't properly match the grid map.
A better map to use:
Zhitomir - http://www.mapywig.org/m/wig300k/79_ZYTOMIERZ_1930.jpg
located just below centre towards the left side of the map.
Uljanowka is due west of Zhitomir, just near the left edge of the map.
