The overall focus on liberal values of Europe, does not make them similar to each other. Each state differs from another not only by the number of its residents, but area, which is located.

Below we will examine three countries in increasing order of their square area.
The largest country in Europe – Ukraine. It takes as much as six percent of the total area of the continent. For a long time this country was one of the many republics of the Soviet Union. But at the end of the twentieth century the Soviet Union collapsed, and Ukraine has received a sovereign status. Kyiv city is the capital of this country, a population of about forty-five million people. It shares borders with several countries: Russia, Belarus, Poland, Romania, Slovakia, Moldavia and Hungary.
Coming out of the USSR in 1990, the Ukrainian people thought can live in new ways.
