map shows the regions of the world where Ukrainian or "Little Russian" is
commonly spoken (red circle). Linguists use the term "Little
Russian" to distinguish it from other Russian languages
such as Belarusian ("White
Russian") and common Russian ("Great Russian").
About 40 million speakers of Urkainian live in the southern
regions of Russia. Ukrainian is not mutually
understandable with Great Russian,
even though Ukrainian is closely related to it and to Belarusian.
