The Ukrainian SSR (Ukrainian Українська Радянська Соціалістична Республіка, Russian Украи́нская Сове́тская Социалисти́ческая Респу́блика) was created on December 25, 1917, and was a constituent republic of the Soviet Union since the USSR was formed in 1922.  After World War II it was internationally recognised as an independent state in its own right (with a seat in the United Nations).

The capital was first Kharkov (in 1918-1934) and then Kiev. Crimea was transferred to the SSR in 1954 from the Russian SFSR.

It declared independence in 1991 as Ukraine.

Ukraine - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia (4495 words)
The western part of Ukraine had been incorporated into newly organized Second Polish Republic, and the larger, central and eastern part, established as the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic in March of 1919, later became a constituent republic of the Soviet Union, when it was formed in December of 1922.
In the encirclement battle of Kiev, the city was acclaimed by the Soviets as a "Hero City", for the fierce resistance of the Red Army and of the local population.
Ukraine is distinguished as one of the first nations to fight the Axis powers in Carpatho-Ukraine, and one that saw some of the greatest bloodshed during the war.
