Thank you for the clarification. Everything is clear now.

By the way, Mapzen Search also gives incorrect result while search for 
https://mapzen.com/products/search/?query=Odessa&endpoint=search . It 
shows the city on the map correctly, but claims that it is Odessa, 
Moldova, though it's definitely should be Odessa, Ukraine [1].

For a short period of time, from 1941 to 1944 both Odessa and Moldova 
were part of the Transnistria Governorate [2], but the search should 
display the current status. I will inform Mapzen about the issue.
