Usage notes

  • In Russia, Украина is mostly used with the preposition на (na), as in
Я живу́ на Украи́не.I live in Ukraine.
In Ukraine, Украина is nowadays mostly used with the preposition в, as in
Я живу́ в Украи́не.I live in Ukraine.
The argument for the usage by Ukrainians is that “на Украине” allegedly implies that Ukraine is still a part of Russia (or the USSR), which Ukraine left in 1991.
