Ukrainian or Ukranian?

In today's The Daily Barometer (http://barometer.orst.edu), one headline reads "Ukrainian uprising is a fight for what is right" and another one reads "The Ukranians have a multitude of reasons to be proud."

Which is the correct spelling? Ukrainian.

Another virtually useless factoid: It used to be called The Ukraine, but now it's simply Ukraine.

OK, you've learned something—take the rest of the day off.
