About the Language
Ukrainian is the native language of about 30 million people, both in Ukraine, where it is the official state language, as well as in many of the neighboring nations of Eastern Europe, and it sustains a rich literary tradition. It is a member of the East Slavic language family and is closely related to Belarusian, Polish, Serbo-Croatian, Slovak, and Russian. Written Ukrainian uses a variant of the Cyrillic script.
