Study in Ukraine
“Ukraine is a country in Eastern Europe. It is located in the heart of Europe. The capital of Ukraine is Kiev, which is very beautiful city. Ukraine is bordered by Belarus to the north, Russia to the east, the Sea of Azov and the Black Sea to the south, Moldova and Romania to the southwest, and Hungary, Slovakia, and Poland to the west. In the far southeast, Ukraine is separated from Russia by the Kerch Strait, which connects the Sea of Azov to the Black Sea. Ukraine, being a large European economy, has a well-developed industrial base, the rich farmlands, highly trained labour and a good education system”.
Ukraine is a large country in Eastern Europe known for its Orthodox churches, Black Sea coastline and forested mountains. Its capital, Kiev, features the gold-domed St. Sophia’s Cathedral, with 11th-century mosaics and frescoes. Overlooking the Dnieper River is the Kiev Pechersk Lavra monastery complex, a Christian pilgrimage site housing Scythian tomb relics and catacombs containing mummified Orthodox monks.
Ukraine is a developing country and ranks 88th on the Human Development Index. As of 2018, Ukraine is the poorest country in Europe alongside Moldova in terms of GDP per capital. At US$40, it has the lowest median wealth per adult in the world and suffers from a very high poverty rate as well as severe corruption.
However, because of its extensive fertile farmlands, Ukraine is one of the world’s largest grain exporters. It also maintains the second-largest military in Europe after that of Russia.
Ukraine is a unitary republic under a semi-presidential system with separate powers: legislative, executive, and judicial branches. The country is a member of the United Nations, the Council of Europe, the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE), the GUAM organization, and one of the founding states of the Commonwealth of Independent States (CIS).
