Abstract : Among the newly independent states which have emerged after the disintegration of the Soviet Union, Ukraine occupies a crucial place. With a population of about 52 million, and an area of some 233 square miles Ukraine is considered by many to be the country that is most likely to achieve economic prosperity. Unfortunately, in spite of its resources and economic potential, Ukraine's political and economic development has lagged behind expectations. Moreover, lack of economic reform has created conditions which could undermine Ukrainian independence. Poor economic conditions, organized crime, high levels of corruption within the government, and an irresponsible parliament are the primary causes of instability in Ukraine. Resolution of these issues is vital to Ukrainian National Security as well as the continuation of Ukrainian independence.
