An Eastern European country bordering the Russian Federation, Belarus, Poland, Slovakia, Hungary, Romania and Moldova, the Ukraine is the largest solely European country. The first years of independence from the USSR were marked by economic turmoil and creeping authoritarianism, culminating in the Orange Revolution of 2004-2005, which replaced one government but failed to permanently resolve concerns of corruption and electoral interference. Child labour, particularly the high number of young girls involved in sex work, is a major problem in the Ukraine, as is domestic violence and child trafficking.
