Nice try but you need to find other excuses for Polish arrogance yet again coming before a fall.
November 1917 - A number of prisoners of war are released from captivity in the Ukraine
A large number of POWs are Czechs and Poles; two of the largest contingents of the Austrian-Hungarian empire.
The Czechs and the Poles as a whole are determined not to be repatriated to the Austrian-Hungarian empire. Their hope was to liberate their homelands from imperial rule.
The Czechs want to go it alone; they demanded passage to France via the Trans-Siberian railway. This is where the Czech adventure begins.
The Poles throw in their lot with the Ukrainian Nationalists.
The Poles are surprised
by the Central Rada when the Ukrainians sign a peace accord with the Germans at Brest-Litovsk on 02/09/1918.
