in 1919, while Poland was busy fighting with the Soviet Union. It was just as much a d*ckish move as the Polish invasion of Czechoslovakia.
Some history from other sources, not Polish books ;):
The majority of Polish forces were engaged in fighting with the West Ukrainian National Republic over eastern Galicia at that time.
I don't see you fighting the Soviet Union in 1919, but Ukrainian republic army.
The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) was a constitutionally socialist state that existed in Eurasia from 1922 to 1991.
Poland broke an agreement of 1918 in 1919 like it did in 1938 with agreement signed in 1925 with the same country.
No. it was inherited, mostly
Ukraine was inherited by Poland? Who gave you the inheritance, daughter of Einstein? ;)
Also there had been some Kozak rebellions. They originated from Polish reluctance to acknowledge Ukrainian nobility.
So Cossacks fought for the recognition of Ukrainian nobility rights? Hm, you might become a new renowned Polish historian ;)
in the 20 century, in that century Ukraine was recognized by Poles as part of Poland and Ukrainian nationals were Polish citizens.
Cool, what a nice recognition, especially from the country, which didn't exist a couple of years earlier. There were Polish nationals in Ukrainian republic, but we didn't "recognize
" you as a part of Ukraine (we've got enough morons, no need in extra)
You will notice the shifts of meaning between words in Enlgihs and Polish and Latin.
What is that, some joke? It reminds me a bit of biological classifications in genuses and species like, for example, that bacteria I was infected with once Polonicus retardicus
, which makes your ass itch.
