Background: Ukraine was the center of the first eastern Slavic state , Kyivan Rus , which during the 10th and 11th centuries was the largest and most powerful state in Europe. Weakened by internecine quarrels and Mongol invasions , Kyivan Rus was incorporated into the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and eventually into the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth. The cultural and religious legacy of Kyivan Rus laid the foundation for Ukrainian nationalism through subsequent centuries. A new Ukrainian state , the Cossack Hetmanate , was established during the mid-17th century after an uprising against the Poles. Despite continuous Muscovite pressure , the Hetmanate managed to remain autonomous for well over 100 years. During the latter part of the 18th century , most Ukrainian ethnographic territory was absorbed by the Russian Empire. Following the collapse of czarist Russia in 1917 , Ukraine was able to bring about a short-lived period of independence (1917-20) , but was reconquered and forced to endure a brutal Soviet rule that engineered two artificial famines (1921-22 and 1932-33) in which over 8 million died. In World War II , German and Soviet armies were responsible for some 7 to 8 million more deaths. Although final independence for Ukraine was achieved in 1991 with the dissolution of the USSR , democracy remained elusive as the legacy of state control and endemic corruption stalled efforts at economic reform , privatization , and civil liberties. A peaceful mass protest "Orange Revolution" in the closing months of 2004 forced the authorities to overturn a rigged presidential election and to allow a new internationally monitored vote that swept into power a reformist slate under Viktor YUSHCHENKO. Subsequent internal squabbles in the YUSHCHENKO camp allowed his rival Viktor YANUKOVYCH to stage a comeback in parliamentary elections and become prime minister in August of 2006. An early legislative election , brought on by a political crisis in the spring of 2007 , saw Yuliya TYMOSHENKO , as head of an "Orange" coalition , installed as a new prime minister in December 2007.
