The Ukrainians are Slavic people belonging to an East Slavic branch native to Ukraine, a country that by total population is the sixth largest nation on European continent. Also among historical names of the people of Ukraine one can find Rusyns (Ruthenians), Cossacks, and several others. Today Ukraine has about 37,541,693 (37 million) people and their closest national relatives are Belarusians and Russians, while Rusyns are either considered another closely related group, or an ethnic subgroup of Ukrainians that claim for themselves to be mixture of Kievan Rus and White Croats.
