Ukraine (Russian: Украина, Ukraina; Ukrainian: Україна, Ukrayina) is a sovereign state located in Eastern Europe. The nation is bordered in the northeast by Russia; in the southwest by Moldova and Romania; and in the northwest by Czechoslovakia, Hungary, and Poland.

History

The modern day nation came into being following the collapse of the Soviet Union in late 1991.

Foreign Relations

Outside of Europe, Ukraine has very friendly relations with Alaska (due in great part to the Ukrainian diaspora comprising a large portion of the population).
