Yes, you read that right, can you name a single war the Ukrainian nationalists, from their emergence as a military force during WWI, that the Ukrainian nationalists have won?
Ukrainian nationalists have always been granted territory by benevolent Muscovites. The Provisional Government of 1917 gave them gubernias of the Russian Empire, the Soviets gave them Donbass, Comrade Stalin gave them the territories of the former Austro-Hungarian Empire together with Russian territories occupied by Poland and Romania.
So where are the peremohas (victories) gentlemen? The Siege of Slavyansk? The Murder of the policemen of Mariupol? For every such peremoha, there is Debaltsevo and Ilovaysk.
I was reminded of this fact when I saw this.
In 1939, Ukrainian nationalists have declared an independent state in the Czechoslovak province of Podkarpatská Rus. It was liquidated within a day by Hungarian forces. The area became the part of Ukraine called Transcarpathia in 1945 through the efforts of Comrade Stalin and the Red Army.
