From 1921 to 1991, Ukraine was a republic of the Soviet Union.  The following map shows how the boundaries of Ukraine changed from the Russian Emprie Period to the Ukraine as a Republic of the USSR and as an indepdendent nation.
Although final independence for Ukraine was achieved in 1991 with the dissolution of the USSR, democracy remained elusive. A peaceful mass protest "Orange Revolution" in the closing months of 2004 forced the authorities to overturn a rigged presidential election and to allow a new internationally monitored vote that swept into power a reformist slate under Viktor Yushchenko. [[Category:Ukraine]]
