Wide ex Soviet Republic of the oriental Europe, constitued to a large extend by the Sarmatian Lowland, it overlooks at South the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov, bounded by Crimea's Peninsula.
The lowland is furrowed from big rivers: The Donec, the Dnepr, the Dnestr and to the border with Romania the Danube.
The climate is everywhere very cold on winter and heat damp on summer.
As all the ex Soviets countries, Ukraine also suffered the passage from the communist totalitarianism to the attempt of democracy and liberalization of the enterprises, with a very bad economic situation, with high inflation, unemployment and very difficult financial situation.
In the last years general conditions are improving and especially in the Capital Kiev is possible to notice a fairly good progress, with a nice cultural unrest and a moderate economical development.
In 2000 the nuclear power station of Cernobyl was closed definitively, it was dismantled thanks to the financial helps (about 2 billions of dollars) of western countries.
