Flag is wrong[edit]

The small flag (referring to the Ukrainian People's Republic) has the colors in the wrong order. Please fix. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 89.133.11.104 (talk) 21:03, 7 May 2008 (UTC)

UN seat[edit]

"After World War II it was internationally recognised as an independent state in its own right (with a seat in the United Nations)." It was? There any documentation of this? Thanx 68.39.174.150 03:56, 15 May 2005 (UTC)

here is an article off of the united nations page that should clear up your doubt

http://www.un.int/ukraine/Ukr-UN/Ukraine-UN/Ukraine%20in%20the%20UN.htm

I simplified the following lengthy

This had only a symbolical meaning at that time's reality where Ukraine (as a Soviet republic) had no voice of its own in international affairs. In reality it meant little more than giving the Soviet Union extra seats (and votes) in the UN, which in itself was rather symbolical and had little effect in international affairs. The important seat of the UN Security Council permanent member was occupied by the USSR.

to

In reality it simply meant giving the Soviet Union extra seats (and votes) in the UN, since Ukraine (as a Soviet republic) had no voice of its own in international affairs.

Which says basically the same, but without POVish weasels: "symbolical meaning" (twice!), "little more", etc. Also, the permanent seat sentence is irrelevant here: there is nothing special that Ukraine, like nearly all otther countries, didn't have perm. Also, "at that time's reality" is a useless (and I would say misleading) phrase, since Ukrainian SSR never had any independent say. mikka (t) 02:52, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

The original phrase might have been sloppily written but the new one misses a significant point that the vote Stalin gave to Ukraine (in UN General Assembly) meant little since there were 100+ members and the General assembly resolutions are meaningless anyway since there is no enforcement mechanism. OTOH, the resolutions of Security Counsil, where the seat belonged to the USSR itself, did matter, hence the vote there too. That what I wanted to say originally. --Irpen 03:00, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

I am afraid you are a bit wrong: Ukraine sat several times at the Security council, where her vote did matter to an extent. USSR had a permanent seat, which had the power of veto, which was used when USSR (or USA, btw) could not outvote by majority. To say or to hint in any way that General Assembly resolutions are meaningless is a disrespect to the body and misunerstanding of its purpose. Nevertheless the point is not missed, since it is covered in the overall general-purpose claim: Ukraine had no international say of its own.
On the other hand, if it is true that UkrSSR had no other, even nominally independent, international authority, this should be mentioned. For example, UkrSSR was not a member of Comecon, Warsaw Pact, etc. Do you know anything in this respect? mikka (t) 03:18, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

I will see what I can find out. Also, the Ukr SSR had its own Ministry of Foreign Affairs, perhaps just to support the UN mission. I don't know. Many states had consulates in Kiev, but so did they in Leningrad, so it doesn't mean much international recognition. It is interesting to find out to what international organization Ukraine belonged as a separate member. I will see whether I can find anything out.

On the side note, I am sorry if it hurts the General Assembly, but its resolutions were indeed meeningless. Every year or so it passed (and maybe still the passes) resolutions condemning Israel for something and it has no effect and they are not ever remembered. OTOH, the single UN Security Council Resolution 242 despite being so old is being brought up all the time despite this particular resolution had no enforcement mechanism. --Irpen 03:27, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

I look at this from other side. It would be truly horrible to have a single world power with abilities to crush anyone. UN is good to arrange cooperation where cooperation is possible. Where it is not possible, it shows who sits on which side of the fence. What it does is pretty useful. mikka (t) 03:52, 8 November 2005 (UTC)

Unreferenced?[edit]

Please explain at talk what in particular is doubted by "underefenced" tag? Entire article? Something particular? Thanks! --Irpen 23:40, 20 November 2005 (UTC)

Wikiproject Ukraine, Importance scale.[edit]

I think this article diserves to be of "Top" importance to the Wikiproject Ukraine, it is literally Ukraine. Why would it not be ranked at the top of the importance scale? Any ideas? Bogdan 00:30, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

Well, I don't know, maybe it should be, because it existed for quite a long time (±80 years). —dima/talk/ 01:10, 15 April 2007 (UTC)

Map quality[edit]

I added the reqmap tag because the current map isn't very helpful. It looks like it was scanned from an atlas; can anyone replace it with a better one, perhaps one with clearly readable text? Bry9000 (talk) 17:33, 7 December 2007 (UTC)

I have removed the reqmap tag from this page, and instead directly tagged the map image file to request cleanup. Bry9000 (talk) 21:06, 11 January 2008 (UTC)
The WP Graphics Lab has helped to clean up the map considerably. It's still not perfect, but it's better, so I'll leave it alone. Bry9000 (talk) 02:21, 1 February 2008 (UTC)

Proposed move to Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic[edit]

It seems that given that the formal name for this nation was "Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic", the soviet prefix abbreviation (-"SSR") shouldn't be in the full article name. Therefore, I propose to move the article to its full form, Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic. We wouldn't have an article about North Korea titled "DPRK", would we? --Micahbrwn (talk) 10:04, 29 December 2007 (UTC)

Please discuss this multimove here --Lox (t,c) 11:43, 30 December 2007 (UTC)

Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic[edit]

The Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (ССР - Украины) was stablished in 25.july.1938 in the 1st session of Supreme Soviet of Ukrainian SSR (Верховного Совета Украинской ССР). Before it, the name was Ukrainian Popular Republic (Украинской Народной Республики) (11 december 1917). The same as Tsentralnaya Rada or Directorate are know now!!!! (known as Tsentralnaya Rada or Directorate... or worse words). --Shliahov (talk) 23:26, 14 February 2008 (UTC)

What? The Soviet Union was established, from which countries? The real problem is the introduction table. the UkrSSR was established on the territory of the UPR and therefore there should be only one political entity identify that was preceding its formation. I do not see how Romania pretains to the formation of the UkrSSR. The fact that Soviet Union occupied the Romanian and Polish territories does not automatically refer to the formation of such pseudo-country.Aleksandr Grigoryev (talk) 17:37, 9 March 2009 (UTC)

Holodomor cat[edit]

Uk SSR does not belong to Category:Holodomor for the same reason as USA does not belong to Category:September 11 attacks. (Igny (talk) 15:23, 26 October 2009 (UTC))
