Introduction

Ukraine is a country located in Eastern Europe. With the land coverage of more than 603,000 square kilometers, it is the second-largest country in Europe. The only bigger one is Russian Federation. In terms of borders, there are 8 different neighbours, namely Russia, Belarus, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania, Moldova, and Crimea. The largest city in Ukraine is Kyiv, which is at the same time its capital. 

Economy

In spite of its enormous size, Ukraine has a moderate GDP with the value of $562 billion. Noteworthy is the fact that these data are correct at the time of writing the article, namely in 2020. If we were to place Ukraine next to other European states, then their GDP would be better than Austria's. However, it would be worse than Sweden's. 

Sadly, the GDP per capita is not as high as one may think. Due to a large population, the value of GDP per capita is at around $13,341. It is considerably lower than in Europe and Central Asia. 

Population

The Population of Ukraine is approximately 41.5 million (without the problematic regions of Crimea and Sevastopol). It makes the nation one of the most populous countries in Europe.
