Ukrainians lost millions of its intelligensia murdered (let tehy rest peacefully) by Russian and Soviet regimes
Most intelligentsia in pre WW1 and interwar Ukraine was Polish with a smaller percentage of Jews and Germans, Ukrainian participation in the educated elite was neglible, Ukrainians as an ethnicity occupied the lower echelons of society, your peoples elite could be counted in thousands, not even tens of thousands.
Of course, we had and have.
You, probably, don't know who the economy and existance of your country was kept on.
Salt mines, silver mines, wood, tar, cattle, agricultural exports while having a huge share of the overall exports were not the financial powerhouse of Poland, sorry buddy but polish economy was not riding on the backs of peasants:)))
t wasn't your "szlachta", lazy horse-riding bastards who treated people like sh*t and struggled for their country just to protect their property and status.
So tell me Nathan why did our nobility willingly relinquished their status in the may constitution i they were such bastards?
Also for lazy bastards they won a lot of wars, wars are hard work, winning them even harder.
Well, it is constantly under construction
Rubbish, its a complete utter ruin, you turned a city which was called "small Paris" across Europe and changed it into a dillapidated dump.
You're so afraid of Lwóws polish history your people willingly devastate and destroy all the old polish architecture, sculptures of great Poles etc, at least when we took over Wrocław we didnt vandalise anything to do with its german past but then again we Poles have a 1000 years of history to fall back on, you have what? One semi-succesfull rebellion nearly four centuries ago, no culture, no heritage, no civilisation, no elites.
