The Republic of Ukraine ( Україна Ukrajina in Ukrainian) in Eastern Europe with the capital Kyiv covers 603,700 km². The country borders Russia to the east and north-east, Belarus to the north, Poland, Slovakia and Hungary to the west, Romania and Moldova to the south-west and the Black and Azov Seas to the south. The former USSR state became sovereign after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991. Ukraine is divided into 24 oblasts (districts), the Autonomous Republic of Crimea (with the capital Simferopol) and the two cities Kyiv and Sevastopol with a special status.
