Lighthouses from Ukraine.

From left to right:
* Sarych Lighthouse, located at the Southernmost point of the Crimean peninsula.  This was one of the Light stations occupied by Russian Navy personnel. It was built in 1911;
* Yalta Breakwater Light, located at the end of the Yalta breakwater. This is one of the best-known lighthouses of Crimea, and its occupation by Ukrainian personnel in January 2006 precipitated the lighthouse crisis between Ukraine and Russia; 
* Vorontsov Lighthouse is a famous red and white 27.2 metres high landmark in the Black Sea in the port of Odessa, Ukraine. It is named after Prince Mikhail Semyonovich Vorontsov, one of the governor-generals of the Odessa region. 
The current lighthouse is the third lighthouse to stand on the same spot. The first lighthouse was built in 1862 and was made of wood; - in: wikipedia
