Nezalezhnaya ia a Russian derisive slang reference to Ukraine. Borrowing of Ukrainian nezalezhna, "independent",[1] with a Russian ending, mocking the historical Ukrainian struggle for independence (compare Russian nezavisimaya). Sometimes used colloquially by Russians and Russian mass media to express ironic, disparaging attitude towards Ukraine.
