Yushenko, doubtless the same as Yushchenko; from a diminutive of Yuri (English "George") with a Ukrainian patronymic ending. So, denotes descent from a Ukrainian ancestor named George.
Kopylov: there is a place called Kopyl in Belarus, but I don't think it is the source of the name, though it may be indicative of a toponymic origin. Kopyl is a Polish and Russian surname, Kopylov Russian.
