Ukraine is a unitary state composed of 24 oblasts (provinces), one autonomous republic (Crimea), and two cities with special status: Kyiv, its capital, and Sevastopol, which houses the Russian Federation Black Sea Fleet under a leasing agreement. Ukraine is a republic under a semi-presidential system with separate legislative, executive, and judicial branches.

The country is home to 46.4 million people, 77.8 percent of whom are ethnic Ukrainians, with sizable minorities of Russians, Belarusians, Poles, Crimean Tatars, Hungarians, and Romanians. The dominant religion in the country in Eastern Orthodox Christianity, which has heavily influenced Ukrainian architecture, literature, and music. Before the Second World War, Ukraine had a sizable Jewish minority. Since 1991, Ukraine has attracted an increasingly significant number of new immigrants from the Former Soviet Union, the Middle East, and Asia and Africa.
