UkraineUkraine (Polish "Frontier") is the name formerly given to a province extending over part of Russia and S.E. Poland, and now divided into the governments of Kiev, Poltava, and Kharkov. Ceded by Poland to the Cossacks in 1672, and acquired by Russia in 1682, it was subsequently shared between Russia and Poland, the Dnieper separating the two countries. In 1795 Russia annexed the whole.
