Ukraine, a region in western Russia, sought independence at the Brest-Litovsk peace conference, and emerged as a German vassal state with its capital in Kiev. On the west, it bordered Austria-Hungary and Romania and to the south the Black Sea.

On February 9, 1918, the Central Powers signed a Treaty of Peace with Ukraine, a region of Russia then chiefly under German occupation, but with a capital, Kiev, that the Bolshevik had briefly wrested from the Ukrainians.

Ukraine is a country in Europe.
