1925 was only 18.3, it rose to 25 in 1926 and to 27.2 in 1927. This percentage, the figures show, is twice as large as the percentage of mixed marriages among Ukrainians and Germans in Great Russia.

The percentage of Jews in Ukrainia and in White Russia who marry Gentiles is much smaller than in Great Russia, but in Ukrainia too it is on the increase, having jumped from 3.6 in 1924 to 5.1 in 1927. The percentage of Jewish women in Ukrainia who marry Gentile men is somewhat larger than the percentage of Jewish men there who marry Gentile women.

The figures show further that the percentage of divorces in Ukrainia among mixed couples was one and a half times as large as the percentage of mixed marriages in 1927. In Great Russia, however, the percentage of divorces among mixed couples in 1926 was smaller than the percentage of mixed marriages that year.
