Etymology

Inherited from Old East Slavic оукраина (ukraina, borderland), synchronically у- (u-) +‎ край (kraj) +‎ -ина (-ina).

Pronunciation

  • Украи́на: IPA(key): [ʊkrɐˈinə]
  • (file)
  • Note: borrowed stress from the Ukrainian Украї́на.
  • (nonstandard) Укра́ина: IPA(key): [ʊˈkraɪnə]
  • Note: although considered non-standard and/or politically incorrect by some, Укра́ина is still a common pronunciation and was so historically, even in Ukrainian (as in the poetry of Taras Shevchenko).

Proper noun

Украи́на or Укра́ина (Ukraína or Ukráinaf inan (genitive Украи́ны or Укра́ины, related adjective украи́нский)

  1. Ukraine (a country in Eastern Europe; capital and largest city: Kyiv)
    в Украи́неv Ukraínein Ukraine (preferred in Ukraine, now also used by many Russians [borrowing from Ukrainian])
    на Украи́неna Ukraínein Ukraine (preferred in Russia)

Usage notes

  • In Russia, Украина is mostly used with the preposition на (na), as in
Я живу́ на Украи́не.I live in Ukraine.
In Ukraine, Украина is nowadays mostly used with the preposition в, as in
Я живу́ в Украи́не.I live in Ukraine.
The argument for the usage by Ukrainians is that “на Украине” allegedly implies that Ukraine is still a part of Russia (or the USSR), which Ukraine left in 1991. With certain exceptions, “в” is used for countries or polities, while “на” is used for broader geographical regions. Thus “на Украине” suggests the historical derivation “на окраине” — “at the borderlands [of Russia]” — which roughly corresponds to the now-deprecated English construction “the Ukraine”, the definite article “the” being used as when referring to a geographical region without sovereign status, e.g. “the West Coast” or “the Midlands”.
