Ukraine gained independence after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991 and has since veered between seeking closer integration with Western Europe and being drawn into the orbit of Russia, which sees its interests as threatened by a Western-leaning Ukraine. Europe's second-largest country, Ukraine is a land of wide, fertile agricultural plains, with large pockets of heavy industry in the east.
While Ukraine and Russia share common historical origins, the west of the country has close ties with its European neighbors, particularly Poland, and nationalist sentiment is strongest there. A significant minority of the population uses Russian as its first language, particularly in the industrialized east. In Crimea, an autonomous republic on the Black Sea that was part of Russia until 1954, ethnic Russians make up about 60% of the population. Russia once again seized and annexed Crimea in March 2014, amid the chaos following the fall of President Viktor Yanukovych, plunging European into its worst diplomatic crisis since the Cold War.
In 1932-1933, Stalin's programme of enforced agricultural collectivization brought famine and death to millions in Ukraine, the breadbasket of the USSR. Not until its twilight years did the Soviet Union acknowledge the extent of the suffering.
News of another Soviet-era calamity, the 1986 accident at the Chernobyl nuclear power station, rang alarm bells around the world immediately. About 8% of Ukraine's territory was contaminated as were large areas in neighboring Belarus. Millions have suffered as a result.
The first president after independence, former Communist Party leader Leonid Kravchuk, presided over the rapid economic decline and runaway inflation.
His successor, Leonid Kuchma, oversaw a steady economic recovery but was accused by the opposition of conceding too much to Russian economic interests.
This position to Mr.Kuchma grew, further fed by discontent at media censorship, manipulation of the political system and cronyism.
The authorities' attempt to rig the 2004 presidential elections led to the "Orange Revolution", with reference to the color of the main opposition movement. Mass protests, a revolt by state media against government controls and the fracturing of the governing coalition brought in European-Union mediation and a re-run of the elections. A fragile alliance of anti-Kuchma forces united behind pro-Western former prime minister Viktor Yushchenko, who won the presidency.
Mr. Yushchenko succeeded in carrying out some democratic reform, but moves towards Nato and EU membership were slowed by the divided public opinion in Ukraine and Western reluctance to antagonize a resurgent Russia.
Rivalry with his prime minister, Yulia Tymoshenko, soured into open antagonism, and neither proved able to cope with the worldwide economic downturn after 2008. Their opponent in the Orange Revolution, Viktor Yanukovych, won the 2010 presidential election. He swiftly re-oriented foreign and trade policy towards Russia, clamped down on media freedom, and had various opponents, most prominently Ms. Tymoshenko, imprisoned in politically-motivated trials.
