Argentina, the eighth largest country in the world, has relied heavily on immigration to boost its population. In 1914 circa thirty percent of the Argentine population was classified as foreign-born. Between the 1890s and 1940s tens of thousands of settlers from Ukraine made their way to that Southern Hemisphere republic. Indeed, Ukrainians constituted the largest of the Slavic groups to immigrate to Argentina and formed significant communities in the provinces of Misiones, Chaco, Mendoza, and Buenos Aires.
