high art

movement of poets in 1920's Ukraine. Despite the populist and propagandistic impulses of Communism, the neoclassical (neoclassicism) movement stressed the production of 'high art' to an educated and highly literate audience. Zerov, particularly, eschewed contemporary politics in his poetry, focusing on aesthetic and historical classical themes under a tight and difficult poetical structure. This approach eventually proved fatal, as Zerov, along with many other Ukrainian writers of the period, was later sent to Solovki prison camp and later executed. '''Alemdar Mustafa Pasha''' (also called '''Bairaktar Mustafa Pasha''') was an Ottoman (Ottoman Empire) military commander and a Grand Vizier born in Khotyn in Turkish-occupied Ukraine in 1765. Both ''alemdar'' and ''bairaktar'' mean "the standard bearer" and were the names given to the same rank in the Janissary corps. While Ottoman Bessarabia corresponded mainly to what now is known as Budjak and is part of Ukraine (along the Black Sea south of Moldova), the Russians applied the name ''Bessarabia'' to the entire annexed territory. Although this usage was ahistorical when first adopted, ''Bessarabia'' has come to refer more commonly to the so-named portion of the Russian Empire than to the older Ottoman Bessarabia. Thus one sees usages such as "1812... Treaty of Bucharest (Treaty of Bucharest, 1812) grants Russia control of eastern Moldova or Bessarabia, the area between the River Prut and the west bank of the Dniester," Commons:Category:Ukraine WikiPedia:Ukraine Dmoz:Regional Europe Ukraine

Ukraine

'''Ukraine''' ( Ukraine borders (State Border of Ukraine) Russia to the east and northeast, Belarus to the northwest, Poland, Slovakia and Hungary to the west, Romania and Moldova to the southwest, and the Black Sea and Sea of Azov to the south and southeast, respectively.

During the Middle Ages, the area of modern Ukraine was the key center of East Slavic culture (List of Slavic cultures), as epitomized by the powerful state of Kievan Rus'. Following its fragmentation in the 13th century, the territory was contested, ruled and divided by a variety of powers, including Lithuania, Poland, the Ottoman Empire, Austro-Hungary, and Russia. A Cossack republic (Cossack Hetmanate) emerged and prospered during the 17th and 18th centuries, but Ukraine's territories remained divided until they were consolidated into a Soviet republic (Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic) in the 20th century. It became independent (Sovereign state) in 1991.

Ukraine has long been a global breadbasket because of its extensive, fertile farmlands. In 2011 it became the world's third-largest grain exporter, with a higher than average yield; The country also has a well-developed manufacturing sector, particularly in aerospace and industrial equipment.

Ukraine is a unitary republic (unitary state) under a semi-presidential system with separate powers (Separation of powers): legislative (Legislature), executive (executive branch), and judicial branches. Its capital and largest city is Kiev. Since the dissolution of the Soviet Union, Ukraine continues to maintain the second-largest military (Military of Ukraine) in Europe, after that of Russia, when reserves and paramilitary personnel are taken into account. IISS 2010 (#IISS2010), pp. 195–197 The country is home to 45.4 million people (including Crimea (Autonomous Republic of Crimea)), country Economy 2014 demographics 77.8% of whom are Ukrainians by ethnicity, and with a sizable minority of Russians (17%), as well as Romanians Moldovans, Belarusians, Crimean Tatars, and Hungarians. Ukrainian (Ukrainian language) is the official language of Ukraine; its alphabet is Cyrillic (Ukrainian alphabet). The dominant religion in the country is Eastern Orthodoxy (Eastern Orthodox Church), which has strongly influenced Ukrainian architecture, literature (Ukrainian literature) and music (Music of Ukraine).
