First of all, we fought Poles as long as we fought Russians.
No you didnt, ruthenian nobles actually welcomed us and embraced our civilization becoming polish themselves :)
As you know many times we gave a good spanking - to both of ya.
No you didnt, we massacred your pathetic little rabble at Beresteczko and then repeatedly in other battles untill you ran to Russia for protection, then it was Russias turn to beat the crap out of you :)
Then directly after WW2 we have kicked your asses in Galicja, you never had a prayer against Poland.
Second, how do you know if they were Ukrainians or Russians when even now after Ukraine is independent for 18 years, many Poles I talked to, don't have a slightest idea in language, cultural and historical differences between the two.
We have thousands of accounts of polish survivors who lived there and did have an idea about the cultural differences between the two :)
Third, we always fought
And lost :) Ukraine has never won a single war, cossack uprisings were having fun untill we got our crap together and them you got massacred, Russia also massacred you and after WW1 taking Lwów was like taking candy from a baby, you were unable to organize even a remotely decent defence.
WON OUR INDEPENDANCE
Not really, you were given your independence by Russia, thats not really "winning it" is it ?
Fourth, do you know that out of 8.7 million Soviet soldiers fallen in WW2, 1.4 million were ethnic Ukrainians? It
That only proves you're good at dying in battles, hardly a good thing is it ?:)
So Sokrates, be kind to the fallen and be grateful that they gave us whatever we have now.
Oh i'm kind to our fallen, in fact i have great sympathy for Ukraine and i believe that its our future to work together i just enjoy pissing you off :)
