UKRAINE VS. THE UKRAINE
Is it Ukraine or the Ukraine?
The official name of the country is simply Ukraine—it does not use the word “the.” The use of the word the when referring to the country (once widespread but now less common) is thought to have been influenced by the period of its history when it was part of the Soviet Union. During this time, it was called the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic, before gaining full independence with the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. Most Ukrainians object to the use of the before the name because it can suggest that the nation is not fully independent.
