I updated the answer. I hope it still falls under fair use. In any case the paper itself is a good resource for this question

comment I need a list of geographical places where the article “THE” is used
@Mari-LouA it may be related. Soviet Union and now Russia insists on saying "na Ukraine" instead of "v Ukraine" (на Украине - В Украине) - It irritates the Ukrainians no end lately for obvious reasons. It may be that the name is derived from "Oкраина" which means something like suburb. Hence when using na one does not recognise Ukraine as a proper country.
