Interested in Language
I have heard this European country being referred to as THE Ukraine very often. Still, when it sadly made the news lately, it was called simply Ukraine.
I've researched the internet to find the reason why...with no luck.
Does anyone know when to use the article in front of Ukraine, and, more importantly, why?
Thanks a lot!
Thanks a lot, Rover
