Boragan was a Mennonite village in the Russian province (now Ukraine) of Taurida (Crimea), founded in the early 1860s by emigrants from the Molotschna settlement, on land which they themselves purchased; the fields were acquired from the Tatars who were migrating to Turkey in consequence of financial failure. The village consisted in 1916 of about 15 families with 75 inhabitants. It had a school, which was under the Crimean school board, and which was used for religious services until the church in Karassan was built. The population belonged to the Karassan congregation; Karassan was about seven miles (12 km) away.
