One difference is that in Russian unstressed vowels are reduced (о pronounced а) and some consonants can be devoiced (like д pronounced т) and in standard Ukrainian they aren't so pronunciation is a bit easier in Ukrainian as it's more phoneticVote Up Vote Down

Ukrainian will be useful in Ukraine. Russian will be useful in Russia, Ukraine, Belarus, Baltic states, on Caucasus and even in middle-Asia (Kazakhstan, Tajikistan etc).Vote Up Vote Down
