Shchors [Ščors]. Map: II-12. A city (2001 pop 12,315) on the Snov River and a raion center in Chernihiv oblast. A khutir established at the site in the 1860s developed into a settlement after the Homel–Bakhmach railway line was constructed (1874), and adopted the name of the nearest railway station, Snovske. In 1924 the settlement was granted city status, and in 1935 it was renamed Shchors. Today it is an industrial and transportation center. It has a furniture factory and railway servicing shops.
