I thought Grodno fell to the Bolsheviks in July,1920? Never realized a Belarussian Division held off the Bolsheviks, till late Sept.1920?
I'm sorry i confused it with Lwów,you're right of course.
Looking back on this idea,it seems visionary?
Yes and no, the idea was smart but Lithuanians were not ready nor willing to participate for a variety of reasons.
And,wasn't the public mood in April/early June 1920 Ukraine, reported to be something similiar to, suspicious apathy towards Petlura government,and the Polish political/military presence?
Absolutely, Ukrainians didnt like the Poles much period, it didnt matter that they faced slavery/extermination at the hands of communist, those Poles who defended Ukraine were just not likeable enough.
oviet policies directed towards the Ukraine from 1921 till 1931/32, suggest the ideal of Ukraine was considered valuable?
Only as far as gaining the farmland, people were expendable.
