Ukraine is my native country. Amazingly beautiful, ancient (Kiev, its capital, is more than 1500 years old, and it is not the oldest city in the country), with richest history, culture and traditions.
Ukraine is known to be the first of Slavic states (Russia was part of the Ukraine in the very beginning and was called "Kiev Russia" (Kiyevskaya Rus')). All the Slavic nations have come from there...
There is one of the largest collections of ancient churches in the Ukraine. Ukrainian language is considered one of the most beautiful in the world. The Crimea (at the Black Sea) is a unique recreational area, one of a kind. Svyatogorsk (near my native city of Donetsk) is known as Little Switzerland.
Ukraine is also known for its writers, poets, musicians, sportsmen...
If you need some specific information, look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ukraine (with external links)
or contact me!
Good luck! :)

Geographically, the things Ukraine is most know for are the "black earth" of central Ukraine (the "breadbasket of Russia"), the coal mines of Eastern Ukraine, and the sea ports of the Crimean coast.
Other mineral resources include iron ore, manganese, natural gas, oil, salt, sulfur, graphite, titanium, magnesium, kaolin, nickel, mercury, timber, and arable land.

Ask the city of Lviv. This is perhaps the biggest architectural dostprimechatelnost Ukraine. The ancient city - the former capital of the principality of Galich.
