Interesting analysis, thanks for sharing.

This may seem like a minor issue, but I just wanted to point out that there is no article necessary in front of "Ukraine."

Calling the country "the Ukraine" is a holdover from the Soviet days, when the country was a region of the USSR, and is considered somewhat offensive to Ukrainians.

Anyway, the preferred nomenclature is simply "Ukraine."
