Great Forgotten Date, 26 October 1939

On this date, for better or worse, the Western Ukraine was united with Greater Ukraine…

The People’s Assembly of the Western Ukraine, which was elected several days prior declared the following:

-Soviet government shall be established in Western Ukraine.

-The Western Ukrainian lands will become part of the Ukrainian SSSR.

-Lands belonging to monasteries and the gentry would be confiscated.

-The banks and large industries will be nationalized.

The Western Ukraine remains part of Ukraine firmly since that date. But the Ukrainian state tries to implement a commemoration of another date in connection with reunification. An unsuccessful attempt of the Western Ukrainian People’s Republic to join with the Ukrainian People’s Republic known as Akt Zluky, which was signed 22 January 1919.
