My wife's great-grandfather was Alexander Georgievich Fudulaki (also Fuderlaki). He was born in Kot-Kitai (now Ostrovnoye) around 1850.
He went to a cadets' school (Junkerskaja sjkola) in Odessa.
Apparently he belonged to the Bulgaria minority in Bessarabia.
Can anyone help me to find more about Alexander and his parents?
