Ukraine since then

The citizens cast a ballot overwhelmingly for freedom in the submission of December 1, 1991. In a decision concurring with the choice, Leonid Makarovych Kravchuk was chosen as the first president. Since then the Ukranian government has been in the process of improvement such as developing the framework for the independent Ukrainian military, building up its state structure, regularized relations with neighbouring nations, the democratization of the country, and setting up its potential in the global network.

Ukraine’s foreign policy was established as a pro-western and it focused on being “European”  opposed to a “Eurasian” nation. The state images and national song of the devotion of the post-World War I Ukrainian National Republic were reinstituted.
