History of Ukraine

Ukraine has an ancient history. The country knew many periods of prosperity and decay. The history of the state takes its roots from the times of ancient Kiev Rus, which was situated on the territory of the present Ukrainian state and set up in the 9th century. It was a powerful feudal state with highly developed culture, its craftsmen were widely known in Europe.

From the 13th century and onwards Ukraine was continuously struggling against hostile invasions of the Turks, the Tatar-Mongols, Lithuanian and Polish rulers. All the conquerors pursued a policy of merciless national oppression. The country was disintegrated; the Ukrainian nation was dissociated for centuries. The lasting struggle of Ukrainian people for their independence ended victoriously under the leadership of Ukrainian hetman B. Khmelnitsky. In 1648 this hetman initiated the admission of Ukraine with Kiev as a part of Russia. The decision was adopted during the historical Pereyaslav Rada.
