It is located south of Primorsk Town on the Gulf of Finland coast where the Yermilovka River (former Humaljoki) flows into the gulf, at the Ushkovo-Primorsk railway branch. Humaljoki was a settlement consisting of nearly 30 minor villages. In 1947-48 it was successively renamed Sosnovka, Khmelnitskaya, and Ryabovo (in memory I. A. Ryabov, a soldier killed in action.) The current name was given after pilot Lt. I. I. Yermilov. With the construction of port facilities in Primorsk, E. has become an important railway junction. Reconstruction of the Yermilovo-Ryabovo-Polyany-Pushnoye is underway, to connect the Scandinavia route and the Seaport of Primorsk. "Sever " JSC, a company farming polar fox and mink, is based in E.
