The Republic of Ukraine is the second largest country in Eastern Europe.

Ukraine is a major industrial and agricultural producer. The country is well-endowed in natural resources and has long been Europe’s, and later the USSR’s breadbasket.
Located in the northern central part of Ukraine on the Dnieper River, Kiev is the capital and the country's largest city, with a population of just under 3 million spread over 839 km. Like the rest of Ukraine, Kiev has a very diverse population with different nationalities represented in the city.
Ethnic Ukrainians make up more than 70% of the total population. The main languages are Ukrainian and Russian, with most people using both as their first languages in everyday life. Many people also speak English, especially in the business district.
Ukrainian people are friendly, hospitable, kindhearted and hardworking individuals. Many of them have made significant contributions to the world in different fields including athletics, art, drama, literature, business, aeronautics and academics.
