Usage notes[edit]

  • Traditionally in English, the proper noun Ukraine has been used with the definite article, the. However, this usage appears to become less common (see References).
  • 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” implies that Ukraine is still a part of Russia (or the USSR), which Ukraine left in 1991.
