4- Hitler transported the Ukrainian land to Germany by trains.
The blue color on the Ukrainian flag represents the sky, and the yellow color represents the fertile land.
The chernozems of central Ukraine, among the most fertile soils in the world, occupy about two-thirds of the country’s area.


These soils may be divided into three broad groups: in the north a belt of the so-called deep chernozems, about 5 feet thick and rich in humus; south and east of the former, a zone of prairie, or ordinary, chernozems, which are equally rich in humus but only about 3 feet thick; and the southernmost belt, which is even thinner and has still less humus.

Ukraine Owns 30% of the World’s Most Fertile Soils!
It has 30% of the “black soil”, which is known as the most suitable soil for agriculture in the world. Due to this feature, China has leased 7% of Ukraine’s fertile lands for 50 years. This area leased by China is larger than the area of the Netherlands or Israel. Ukraine will receive $2.6 billion for this use agreement of 3 million hectares. Some Arab countries and Libya are also waiting in line for a similar agreement. During World War II, the German government transported black soil to Germany by train.
5- Ukraine gave all its nuclear power to Russia. Today they regret that they made this decision.


On December 8, 1991, Belarus, Russia, and Ukraine took a joint decision to officially abolish the Soviet Union. The Commonwealth of Independent States was declared, and Ukraine became independent. Ukraine was the third-largest nuclear power globally with 1800 nuclear warheads when the Soviet Union collapsed.
In 1994, Ukraine gave up all nuclear warheads to Russia, with the assurance that it would recognize its territorial integrity and not exert commercial and political pressure while giving up its nuclear weapons.
