Facts

Economy
Rich in mineral deposits (especially coal and iron ore) and highly arable land; Ukraine has great economic potential. A sustained postindependence economic plummet was reversed by several years of growth, but many Ukrainians hover on the edge of poverty. Transition to a market economy, while holding hope for a brighter future, has thus far been blighted by corruption, cronyism and uneven progress (cities grow while smaller towns wither and fade). Dependent upon Russia’s oil and gas.
