Basic information about Ukraine
Ukraine is a country in Eastern Europe. It was formerly part of the Soviet Union, but gained its independence when the USSR collapsed in 1991. Ukraine is the largest country whose territory is entirely in Europe (Russia is larger, but most of its territory is in Asia), and has a population of 49 million. It is, by European standards, a relatively poor country, with a GDP of $127 billion in 2010 – that works out at approximately $2,795 per capita.
Ukraine’s capital city is Kiev (also sometimes spelled Kyiv), which is today an increasing popular travel destination – helped by Ukraine’s decision to allow visa free travel for US citizens, as well as citizens from most of Europe. The Crimea, in the south of Ukraine is located on the Black Sea, and also proves a popular tourist destination. Other Ukrainian holiday options include Ukrainian River Cruises along the Dnieper River.
Politically, Ukraine has struggled to assert its independence from Russia. The Orange Revolution of 2004 which led to the election of western leaning Viktor Yushchenko was followed in 2010 by the election of Viktor Yanukovych, who is thought to be more eastern leaning, and in favour of more stable relations with Russia.
