This detailed nautical chart showing the mouth of the Dnieper River and the Ukrainian city of Kherson was first published in London in 1967 by the United Kingdom Hydrographic Office under the direction of Rear Admiral George Stephen Ritchie, using a map created by the Soviet government in 1964. According to text in the lower left, updates were made through 1995, indicating the image had a 30+ year lifespan. Apparently, the need for exacting minutiae on up-to-date charts was not necessary for the British Navy, at least in this part of the world!
The map presents sailing information from the central channel of the Dniprovs’ka Gulf up the Dnieper River to the outskirts of Kherson. Depth soundings, navigational signals, and major landmarks are noted. As a major port and shipbuilding facility with easy access to the Black Sea, the city played an important role in the Soviet economy.
