Ukraine is the largest Country in Europe. It has a population of around 45,000.
The Ukraine is split between pro-Russian sentiment in the east and those favoring closer ties to the EU in the west.
Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko is expected to use his speech to the UN to draw attention to the situation in his country, while most of the world's attention has been on Syria. Talks between the US and Russia have raised hopes of ending the diplomatic stalemate.
