Here are fragments from the book
Of course, everyone new. And certainly he needed protection of some force since Hungarians were waiting at the border just waiting to get "Fass!" order. And this is exactly what happened a few days later when the Hungarians entered the Carpatho-Ukraine.
Poles executed Ukrainian soldiers fighting in the Carpatho-Ukraine. Pathetic Slavic bastards.
Augustin Voloshyn perfectly knew that the left-overs of Czechoslovakian troops won't be able to hold long against the Hungarians. I am surprised this fact bothers you. It is called diplomacy, not hot-headed suicidal mission.
That quote was about autonomous Subcarpathian Rus/Carpatho-Ukraine!!!!
Was Augustin Voloshyn a legally elected head of the mentioned autonomy within the Czechoslovakia or not? Yes, he was. And Czech army was protecting him when the Hungarians under conscent of Nazis occupied the given territory. Otherwise, he would have been arrested.
In October 1938, he was the head of the Subcarpathian Autonomous Region. During the total destruction of Czechoslovakia by Hitler's Germany, he tried to preserve Carpatho-Ukraine independence and became president of Carpatho-Ukraine for a few hours (March 15, 1939) with the help of the rest of the Czechoslovakian army. On March 19, 1939, Voloshyn under the protection of last Czechoslovakian troops retreated to the Romanian Kingdom's border, which was Czechoslovakia's ally. Subcarpathia was occupied by Hungary.
You avoid this and I see why. This is the second time I am posting it for you.
At the time of the first partition of Poland in 1772, there were some 4.7 million Uniates in the Polish-Lithuanian state and barely 400000 Orthodox believers.
How was it possible if 170 years earleir Uniates as a word haven't existed? If you have read on Cossacks uprising, which "surprisingly" started around the time of Brest Union of 1596, then the picture will become more clear as to why there was such huge unnatural discrepancy in believers.
The church in question was transfered into Catholic Cathedral in 1919, and I already posted something about it.
Only two Orthodox churches were left untouched in Polish capital. Do you know how many other were destroyed or converted into Catholic churches? Were all 'Ukrainian' churches destroyed or given back to Catholic faithful? No! So your divagations make no sense.
No, but minimum 210 were destroyed, buurnt, taken apart and material sold to Poles to build homes on Ukrainian farmer's lands. I don't see where I divagate. I am again interested why these two were left untouched in the middle of your country while Polish government destroyed hundreds of Ukrainian churches in Volyn'?
Carpatho-Ukraine under Voloshyn's government became a tool in the hands of OUN activists, and even more so it was used by Nazi Germany for its own purposes.
So what tool was it exactly? What was going on in Carpatho-Ukraine during the leadership of Augustin Voloshin?
In Carpatho-Ukraine itself an authoritarian regime was set up and characterized by:
(1) a single-party system;
(2) the adoption of a Ukrainian nationalist ideology as an official yet unconstitutional means of struggle against anyone with different political views, which permitted internment without trial at a camp in *Dumen;
(3) the establishment of a paramilitary organization, the *Carpathian Sich, which implemented by force the generally unpopular decrees of the Voloshyn government;
(4) the abolition of an independent judiciary.
He was professor of mathematics at Uzhhorod Teacher Institute from 1900 to 1917. In 1918, he became head of the Subcarpathian National Council, which in 1919 asked Czechoslovakia to confederate Transcarpathia into Czechoslovakia. This was realised in Autumn 1919. In 1925, he was voted as MP in Houses of Parliament in Prague (as a leader of Ruthenian National Christian Party). In October 1938, he was the head of the Subcarpathian Autonomous Region.
And here is to your lies as to the one-party system:
The communists, strong in the poor province, attempted to appeal to the Ukrainian element by espousing union with Soviet Ukraine. In 1935 the communists polled25 percent of the Ruthenian vote. The elections of 1935 gave only 37 percent of the Ruthenian vote to political parties supporting the Czechoslovak government. The communists, Unified Magyars, andautonomist groups polled 63 percent.
As one can clearly see there were multiple parties, not ONE as you falsely claim, but at the very least 5 parties with different political agenda. So your lies is completely out of place.
Regarding Dumen internement camp:
Here are fragments from the book
Yes, I have read this book:
The Cultural confrontation between the Ukrainians and the Poles cost the former dearly: it forced Ukrainian nobles to choose between their own stagnant, impoverished cultural heritage an the vibrant attractive Catholic/Polish culture. Not surprisingly, the vast majority opted for Catholicism and the Polonization that invariably followed. Consequently, the Ukrainian lost their noble elite.
Well, I wouldn't agree with O. Subtelny completely as elite was not lost, but diminished. The elite that left and constantly fed by Ukrainian peasants kept Ukrainian culture alive through the centuries until 18th century were it went through the Renaissance. I agree though that Catholicism was attractive, but not as religion, but as a source of multiple interesting discoveries and literature written exclusively in Latin. This was something that attracted nobles. The heritage of Roman empire and works by Catholic scholars of Middle Ages were something to be drawn to, no doubt. Polish culture as such and mentioned after the dash only signifies that, since the major flow of the Western culture went through Poland, it might seem as a clash of two cultures. But in fact it wasn't a clash between Polish and Ukrainian cultures, but between the one of Catholicism, undergoing Renaissance at that time (Da Vinci, Michelangello, Rafaello, St. Peter's Basilica, Newton,...) and the Eastern Orthodox (deteriorating after the fall of Constantinopole in 1453 and its main Orthodox center).
they should move to Ukraine !
Ukraine is not specifically interested in Peremyshel and Holm regions to make a move. But if you insist, well, someday your wish might be granted ;)
