About Ukraine

Ukraine Flag
The map shows Ukraine, a country at the crossroads between Europe and Asia situated in eastern Europe, north of the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov. Ukraine's fertile land was known as the breadbasket of the Soviet Union; now it became the breadbasket of Europe.

With an area of 600,000 km², it is the second-largest country in Europe after European Russia, twice the size of Italy or slightly smaller than the US state of Texas. Ukraine borders Belarus, Hungary, Moldova, Poland, Romania, Russia, and Slovakia.

The landscape of Ukraine consists mainly of plains and plateaus, except the Carpathians in the west. Mount Hoverla (Hora Hoverla) is at 2.061 m (6.760 ft.), the highest peak in the country.

Ukraine's major rivers are the Dniester, the Southern Bug (Pivdennyi Buh), the Desna, the Donets, and the Dnieper (Dnipro), a vital waterway and the longest river in Ukraine with its large water reservoirs the Kremenchuk Reservoir and the Kakhovka Reservoir.

Ukraine has a population of 42 million people (in 2020), the capital and largest city is Kiev (Kyiv) with a population of 2,8 million, the city is a major industrial, scientific, educational, and cultural center in Eastern Europe. Spoken languages are Ukrainian (official), Russian is widely spoken, especially in eastern and southern parts of the country.
