The Wikipedia has the following information about this codepoint:

Ghe with upturn (Ґ ґ; italics: Ґ ґ) is a letter of the Cyrillic script. It is part of the Ukrainian alphabet, the Pannonian Rusyn alphabet and both the Carpathian Rusyn alphabets, and also some variants of the Urum and Belarusian (i.e. Belarusian Classical Orthography) alphabets. In these alphabets it is usually called "Ge", while the letter it follows — ⟨Г г⟩ (which in its turn is also called "Ge" in Russian and many other languages) — is called "He". In Unicode, this letter is called "Ghe with upturn".

The letterform of this letter is based on the letterform of the letter ⟨Г г⟩, but its handwritten and italic lowercase forms do not follow the italic modification of ⟨г⟩ (i.e. г).

It represents the voiced velar plosive /ɡ/, like the pronunciation of ⟨g⟩ in "go".

Ghe with upturn is romanized using the Latin letter G (but with an additional grave accent in ISO 9).
