Hi! I'm querying "городецького" (gorodetskogo), but OSM can't find me anything, while there is one actually, "Архітектора Городецького вулиця" (str. of Architect Gorodetskiy).

I can't see any reason for this, except the search could do better. Can we improve it?

Thanks!

I can find correctly Архітектора Городецького вулиця
http://www.openstreetmap.org/way/4357025

but if I search for only the middle part Городецького it finds a mountain pass only.

Curious? ...something to do with the language sets I guess.
Appears to be in Ukraine.
