Ukrainian Semantics Question

Does anyone know how one would say 'New' in Ukrainian (or, barring that, Russian) in the event of founding a new city that's named after an existing one (as with 'New York' or 'New Hampshire,' for example)?

Note that I'm not simply looking for a transliteration of the English word 'new,' here. Near as I can tell, though, there are no real Ukrainian cities that are named in this manner, so I thought I'd see if any linguistically-oriented folks could help me out.
