Where does the sun rise in Ukraine?

The sun always rises in the east, everywhere and regardless of the country or continent. The easternmost city in Ukraine is Milove in oblast Luhansk. There, the sun rises at 6:08 am and sets at 6:13 pm these days. The latest sunset is currently experienced in the west in the city of Chop (Zakarpattia) at 7:25 pm.

Duration of the sunset

The distance from the equator and the path of the sun determines not only the time of sunrise and sunset. The farther a country is from the equator, the more oblique the sun's path is to the horizon. And this causes a different duration that a sunset takes. Kyiv lies on the 50th degree of northern latitude and is therefore very far away from the equator. While a sunset near the equator only lasts about 20 minutes, in Ukraine this period averages 47 minutes. In June, it's about 55 minutes in Kyiv, while in December it's 39 minutes.
