Title of Research:

“Ukrainian State-Building and Federalism (1917-1921): Is It an Affirmative Interaction?”


This project will examine federalist projects and ideas from the Ukrainian Revolution of 1917-1921. These ideas had a common feature: on the one hand, they proclaimed an aspiration to shape the federation as a national state and, on the other, they maintained a temporary loyalty to national minorities (Jews, Poles, Russians and others). This was the antinomic essence of Ukraine’s federalism.
