Ukraine in a Nutshell
Ukraine (Ukrainian: Укрaїна) is a large country in Eastern Europe, and the second largest country in Europe. Ukraine has a very rich culture and history, as well as a multitude of activities for the aspiring traveler.
While Ukraine has fertile farmlands, a well-developed industrial base, and a strong education system, these factors have not translated into wealth for the vast majority of Ukrainians.
Ukraine is one of the poorest countries in Europe due to high levels of corruption, weak economic management, and political instability. Due to high levels of emigration, a decreasing birthrate, and a high death rate, it has one of the most rapidly declining populations of any large world.
After the country's independence, many Ukrainians have emigrated in search of better opportunities. Although the majority of Ukrainians emigrate to Russia, some have taken advantage of opportunities in the European Union.
