The Ukrainian language has survived till nowadays despite its various dark periods, when its use had been politically discouraged or even banned. Nevertheless, Ukrainian has always kept a certain popular basis and now it is resurfacing after the attempt of "russification" occurred during the Soviet period.
Even though there are almost 50 million Ukrainians in the world (of whom 37,5 in Ukraine, 78% of the total population), Ukrainian is prevalent only in western Ukraine.
For this reason, starting from 1991 (when Ukrainian became the official language of the country), the government brought out various politics in order to stimulate its use on a larger scale.
The first result is that now in Kiev (the capital), both Russian and Ukrainian are spoken, an important change in comparison to the past situation when the city was almost only Russian speaking.
However, in the north and in the centre of the country, Russian is still the most diffused language in the cities, while Ukrainian is more diffused in the rural areas.
On the contrary, in the south-eastern part of the country, Russian prevails also in the countryside and, in Crimea, Ukrainian is almost completely absent.

Besides, there are various dialects of Ukrainian which are usually classified for geographical areas: northern, south-western and south-eastern. Each of these macrogroups in its turn contains many local varieties.
At a general level, Ukrainian is the twenty-seventh most spoken language in the world. The most part of the foreign countries where Ukrainian is spoken are former Soviet Republics or bordering countries like Poland, Slovakia, Romania and Serbia.
Due to emigration, there are large communities of Ukrainian speakers in Brazil, United States, Canada and Argentina.
