About Ukraine

Located on the western edge of Russia, Ukraine has a population of more than 50 million. The dissolution of the Soviet Union started an economic transition, in which Ukraine was stricken with a depression it has yet to recover from. The average monthly wage is $355 and the country's divorce rate is ranked fifth in the world. Its capital city, Kyiv, is recognized as a significant supplier to human trafficking. High levels of poverty, unemployment, and alcoholism contribute to parents being unable to care for their own children. With more than 50,000 street kids living in the Ukraine and many of them turning to prostitution, the AIDS epidemic is increasing to one of the highest in the world.
