Well, the Polish had Russian cookers, why shouldn't the Ukrainians have Polish pans?
;)0 Good one!
Intellectual polish superiority explain only one thing to me, please:
"The Cossack Hetmanate began in 1649 as a result of the Khmelnytsky Uprising and lasted until 1775 when it was taken over and dissolved and taken over by the Russian Empire. The Hetmanate had a very high literacy.
"The Poles suppressed the Ukrainian educational system, reducing the number of Ukrainian-language schools from 440 to 8. Higher education became unattainable for Ukrainians in Poland. In the middle schools in Volhynia only 344 (14%) Ukrainians were enrolled in comparison to 2599 Poles (1938)."
You had no litertaure, no elite, no dynasty or territory you could claim as your own no before 1848 anyway - take or leave a few years.
I was hoping for interesting exchange but you have nothing to suport your view just yours belives and myths.
Please, don't repeat BS again. Thank you.
