There is no need for "the" preceding Ukraine. Since August 24, 1991, Ukraine is an idependent country (yes, Virginia:)). Although some countries retain the definite article (the Netherlands, la France), most don't. We don't say "the England," "the Germany," "the Romania," "the China," - so we should not say, by the same logic, "the Ukraine."
What jurisdiction is Vladyka Afafangel of? Thanks!
