Let us divide an abelian variety by an action of a finite group, then find a crepant resolution of the resulting singularities. This is a general version of the Kummer construction which leads to Calabi-Yau and hyperkaehler manifolds. I will explain how to calculate cohomology of the resulting manifold. This will be a report on a joint work with Marco Andreatta and on a work of Maria Donten.
