No. they didn't want to be part of it, Just as Poles didn't want the partitions.
Enough Ruthenians were happy enough in Galicia and later Poland. The Ukrainian nationalists never conducted a plebiscite on the issue, and the Communists just made a sham out of things to the point that educated Ruthenians fled from them to the German side.
You conveniently forget that even decades before Gorgolewski was born the Poles had had more time to get used to the partitions than the II Republic even existed for. Perhaps it it had lasted a few decades longer we'd have seen an honourable uprising by the Ukrainians.
The point here, which you missed, is that Galicia was the best part of the partitions to live. That is why Gorgolewski and other "Germans" moved here. Ruthenians were never a majority in Galicia, nor in the former Galician Polish voivods as a whole. Wołyń was the problem area, and it was handled poorly as was the entire issue of Ukraine in the Treaty of Riga.
... relations between Poles and Ukrainians are just fine nowadays. No need for foreigners to interfere.
We all know what happened in Lwów, we all know what happened in WW2 - how about just leaving it be and focus on how great relations are nowadays between the people?
Spot on. We don't post polemics about Chris's country's relations with Cuba.
Really, you two should just head your own advice then.
Poland didn't follow the U.K.'s model in Ireland of attempting to end the Gaelic language. Should I continue that comparison?
Spot on, indeed!
How are Poland's relations with Cuba relevant to this discussion?
It's never good to try and make tawdry and revisionist political points
You may not care about that but I don't care about your remarks.
I am sure many here might consider many of Jon's comments on other topics tawdry. Such subjective comments are hardy useful for furthering discussion of this topic.
