Demographics

The demographics of Ukraine include statistics on population, ethnicity, health, religious affiliations, and other aspects of the population of Ukraine.

It is also estimated that there are about 50,000 ethnic Koreans (0.12%) in Ukraine that belong to the Koryo- saram group. Their number may be as high as 100,000, as many ethnic Koreans were assimilated into the majority population.


Language

The official language of Ukraine is Ukrainian and Russian is also the language that is widely spoken, especially in eastern and southern Ukraine. According to the 2001 census, 67.5 percent of the population declared Ukrainian as their native language and 29.6 percent declared Russian. Most local Ukrainian speakers recognized Russian as a second language.

Ukrainian is specifically spoken in western and central Ukraine. In western Ukraine, Ukrainian is likewise the dominant language in cities (such as Lviv). In central Ukraine, Ukrainian and Russian are each equally used in cities, with Russian being more common in Kyiv, while Ukrainian is the dominant language in rural groups. In eastern and southern Ukraine, Russian is usually used in cities, and Ukrainian is used in rural areas.

Transport

Ukraine's paved roads in total are stretched for 164,732 kilometers. The letter M is a market for international for major routes that extend and covers all the major cities of Ukraine and also provides the cross-border routes to the country’s neighbors. In Ukraine, there are only two true motorway standard highways, one is 175 kilometers from Kharkiv to Dnipro, and second is the section of MO3 which extends 18 kilometers from Kyiv to Boryspil, where the country International airport is located.

In Ukraine, rail transport connects with all major urban areas, port facilities, and industrial centers with neighboring countries. Donbas is the highest concentration railway track in Ukraine. As per the statistics in 1995 Ukraine rail freight transport fell by 7.4% in comparison to 1994 but still Ukraine is one of the highest rail users in the world. Railroad track in Ukraine extends for 22,473 kilometers from which 92,50 kilometers are electrified. As per now in Ukraine, the state is having the monopoly on the provision of passenger rail transport and all trains apart from those who are with the cooperation of other foreign companies on international routes, are operated by its company ‘Ukrzaliznytsia’. In Ukraine, air transport is developing quickly with a visa-free program for EU nationals and citizens of a number of other Western nations. Increased numbers of travelers are handling by the Nations aviation center. The football tournament which was held in Poland and Ukraine as a joint host named EURO 2012 prompted the government to invest heavily in transport infrastructure and airports in particular. The Donetsk airport which was completed for EURO 2012 was destroyed by the end of 2014 because of the ongoing war between the government and separatist movement. 

The country’s largest airport, Kiev Boryspil is having three passenger terminals and also the base of the country’s flag carrier, Ukraine International Airlines. Other large airports include those in Kharkiv, Lviv, and Donetsk are destroyed now but Dnipro and Odesa airports are having a plan for terminal upgrades in the near future. Ukraine has a number of airlines along with flag carrier which includes Windrose Airlines, Dniproavia, Azur Air Ukraine, and AtlasGlobal Ukraine. Antonov Airlines which is having a subsidiary of the Antonov Aerospace Design Bureau is the only operator of the world’s largest fixed-wing aircraft, the An-225. The port of Odesa provides the international maritime travel from where ferries sail regularly to Istanbul, Varna, and Haifa. Urkferry is the largest ferry company that presently operating these routes.


Education

As per the Ukraine Constitution, access to free education is granted to all citizens. In-state school’s complete general secondary education is compulsory which constitutes the overwhelming majority. On a competitive basis, free higher education and communal educational establishments are provided. Also, there are some accredited private secondary and higher education institutions in small numbers. 

The literacy rate is estimated at 99.4% because of the Soviet Union's emphasis on total access to education for all citizens which continued today as well. From 2005, an eleven-year program is replaced by a twelve-year program and primary education takes four years to complete which start from the age of 6 years, middle education takes five years to complete which is also known as secondary education and after that upper secondary takes three years. School leaving exams are referred to in grade 12 which is a government test as well and test results are used for university admissions.

During the late 16th and early 17th centuries, the first higher education institutions emerged. Ostrozka School is the first Ukrainian higher education institution which is similar to Western European higher education institutions of the time. In 1576, in the town of Ostrog, the Collegium established the first higher education institution in the Eastern Slavic territories. In 1632, the oldest university was established named Kyiv Mohyla Academy and in 1694, it was officially recognized by the government of Imperial Russia as a higher education institution. In the oldest list, one more is there named Lviv University which was founded in 1661. Other higher education institutions were set in the 19th century with the beginning of universities in Kharkiv, Kyiv, Odesa, Chernivtsi and a number of professional higher education institutions as well eg. Nizhyn Historical and Philological Institute which was originally established as a Gymnasium of Higher Sciences in 1805, a Veterinary Institute in 1873, a Technological Institute in Kharkiv in 1885, a Polytechnic Institute in Kyiv in 1898 and a higher Mining School in Katerynoslav in 1899. In Soviet period rapid growth was followed and by 1988, a number increased to 146 of higher education institutions with over 850.000 students. Most of the institutions which were established after 1990 were owned by private organizations. 

The education system of higher education is compromised with higher educational establishments, scientific and methodological facilities that are under the national, municipal, and self-governing bodies. In Ukraine, higher education organizations are built up according to the structure of education of the world’s higher developed countries because it is defined by UNESCO and the UN. In total Ukraine has more than 800 higher education institutions and as per statistics in 2010, the number of graduates reached 654,700 people.

Ukraine ranked seventh in population; also it produces the fourth-largest number of post-secondary graduates in Europe. Education of higher studies are state-funded or private and who studied at state expense, they receive a standard scholarship if their marks are average at the end of term exams and differentiated test suffices but this rule is different in some universities. Also, the scholarship is increased by 25% for the highest grades. The government subsidy is not sufficient to cover basic living expenses for most of the students that’s why most of the universities provide subsidized housing for out-of-city students and also it is common in their libraries to provide the required books for all the registered students. In Ukraine, universities give two degrees, one is the bachelor's degree of 5-6 years according to the Bologna process and the other is a specialist degree of 5 years usually which was the only degree awarded by universities of Soviet times. 

In Ukraine, the law of higher education came into force on 6th September 2014 and it was approved in Ukraine parliament on 1st July 2014. The main changes which took place in the system of higher education is: a separate body was made to monitor the quality of education, every institution has the right to implement their own educational and research programs, increased the role of student government, all institutions of higher education has the right to freely administer their own revenues, academic mobility for faculty and students, another 5 types of higher education qualification were established named Junior Bachelor, Bachelor, Master, Doctor of Philosophy and Doctor of Science, also reduced the load on lecturers and students, etc.
