Ukrainian in Ukraine

Profile Text
Submit Profile Text:

Introduction / History
Second only to the Russians as the former Soviet Union's largest ethnic group, the hardworking Ukrainians proudly maintain their colorful folk culture (with music and art playing an important role), and their distinctive literary tradition. Kiev is the third largest metropolis in the former USSR, after Moscow and St. Petersburg. Historic ties to Poland and a Cossack tradition contribute to the Ukrainian heritage. Ukrainians love good food and drink and have a hearty zest for life. Often referred to as the breadbasket of the former Soviet Union, Ukraine is the primary grain-producing region. It also boasts great mineral wealth and has a productive iron and steel manufacturing economy.

Ukraine, which covers 603,000 sq.km., lies to the north of the Black Sea in southwest European Russia. Its capital is Kiev. There are also large numbers of Ukrainians in Siberia and northern Kazakhstan.

Prayer Points
* Pray that they base their love of life upon relationship with Christ, and become passionate evangelists.
* Pray for healing of the ancient mistrust between Russia and Ukraine.
* Pray for a just resolution of the dispute between Orthodox and Catholics over church properties.
