I've only heard secondhand about A Clockwork Orange, but for some reason I recall "droog" having a similar meaning in that book's argot. Does that draw on the word друг? (I won't say it's specifically inspired by Ukrainian, though--when I looked the word up on Forvo (the first time I've ever done that) I actually ended up on a Russian listing)
