Sample text

Establishing a Ukrainian state on all Ukrainian ethnic territory had been the primary goal of Ukrainians between the wars. When Ukrainians in Transcarpathia declared independence in 1938 as Czechoslovakia was disintegrating, many Ukrainians crossed the Carpathians to aid them, hoping to establish a piedmont that could be used to liberate the rest of Ukraine. Stalin groused that attaching Ukraine to Transcarpathia was the equivalent of "sewing an elephant to a button," but was sufficiently concerned about the developments to incorporate the territory into the Soviet Union in 1945.

This study examines the post-World War II conflict through lens of the broader historical relationship between Polish and Ukrainian interests. In the first chapter, I endeavored to provide a brief overview to Polish-Ukrainian relations dating back to the tenth century Polish claim to lands that now comprise modern western Ukraine. It was this territorial claim along with the Polish imperative to assimilate the Ukrainian population in those territories that ultimately determined Polish policy until the twentieth century and resulted in various episodes of conflict between the two ethnic groups.

Eventually, Hungary was able to reoccupy western Volhynia while holding Galicia, and the death of Louis in 1382 brought forty years of conflict to an end. The Polish conquest of Rus' was not conducted as a typical medieval transfer of a principality from one crown to another; rather, it was a clear attempt to change the religion and culture of the people. This policy of Polonizing the region continued in various forms for the next 600 years with Poland (in its various iterations) claiming the territories of Rus' as Polish lands.
