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.

Due to high levels of corruption, bad economic management, and political instability, the Ukraine is one of the poorest countries in Europe. Due to high levels of emigration, a dropping birthrate, and a high death rate, the country has one of the fastest-shrinking populations of any significant nation.

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.
