    sorry my friend , a lot of mistakes here

    1) UPA had the leftist ideology. Cuban communists have used a lot of UPA ideology
    2) second polish republic (empire) , was the semi- fascist , apartheidic toward Ukrainians - Belarusians , antisemitic, undemocratic state . T. Snyder wrote 100 books on this subject. second polish republic (empire) was an ally Nazi Germany when it annexed part of Czechoslovakia. second polish republic (empire) occupied and annexed totally illegal western parts of BPR and UPR and some parts of LR
    3) UPA was only one organization which fought successfully both totalitarian sect leaders Koba and Hitler

    "
    Within the region originally demanded from Czechoslovakia by Nazi Germany in 1938 was an important railway junction city of Bohumín. The Poles regarded the city as of crucial importance to the area and to Polish interests. On 28 September, Beneš composed a note to the Polish administration offering to reopen the debate surrounding the territorial demarcation in Těšínsko in the interest of mutual relations, but he delayed in sending it in hopes of good news from London and Paris, which failed to come. Beneš then turned to the Soviet leadership in Moscow, which begun a partial mobilisation in eastern Belarus and the Ukrainian SSR and threatened Poland with the dissolution of the Soviet-Polish non-aggression pact.[4]

    At noon on 30 September, Poland gave an ultimatum to the Czechoslovak government. It demanded the immediate evacuation of Czechoslovak troops and police and gave Prague time until noon the following day. At 11:45 a.m. on 1 October the Czechoslovak foreign ministry called the Polish ambassador in Prague and told him that Poland could have what it wanted. The Polish Army, commanded by General Władysław Bortnowski, annexed an area of 801.5 km² with a population of 227,399 people.

    The Germans were delighted with this outcome. They were happy to give up a provincial rail centre to Poland; it was a small sacrifice indeed. It spread the blame of the partition of Czechoslovakia, made Poland an accomplice in the process and confused the issue as well as political expectations. Poland was accused of being an accomplice of Nazi Germany – a charge that Warsaw was hard put to deny.[5]
    Poland occupied some northern parts of Slovakia and received from Czechoslovakia Zaolzie, territories around Suchá Hora and Hladovka, around Javorina, and in addition the territory around Lesnica in the Pieniny Mountains, a small territory around Skalité and some other very small border regions (they officially received the territories on 1 November 1938 (see also Munich Agreement and First Vienna Award)."

    Yes, Poland in mid-wars period behaved itself sometimes disgusting. Discrimination against the Ukrainians lasted for decades if not centuries before 20th century. It is because Ukrainian nationalists had anti-Polish views. But what did you mean? That Ukraine should continue glorification of UPA and Bandera?

    And what do you mean saying UPA had a leftist ideology? In economics or what?

    A couple of posts above you said something like that Russia is a big country and it can have its sphere of influence.

    why they ´d not these who were dying for Ukrainian independent state and which defended Ukrainians from Polish semi -fascist state. NKVD- terrorists, communist red-army, polish AK and German Nazis ? specially , S Bandera . whats wrong with this figure? but you have a point here, too much Stalinist and Greater Poland propaganda against UPA today, its smarter for UR to hold lower profile on this subject

    "
    he Bandera Movement is preparing a revolt in the Reichskommissariat which has as its ultimate aim the establishment of an independent Ukraine. All functionaries of the Bandera Movement must be arrested at once and, after thorough interrogation, are to be liquidated...".[49] On 5 July, Bandera was transferred to Berlin. On 12 July, the prime minister of the newly formed Ukrainian National Government, Yaroslav Stetsko, was also arrested and taken to Berlin. ..... On 15 September 1941 Bandera and leading OUN members were arrested by the Gestapo.

    In January 1942, Bandera was transferred to Sachsenhausen concentration camp's special barrack for high-profile political prisoners Zellenbau.[50]"


    Ukrainian and Belarusian statehood ideologies are leftish in general , meanwhile Polish and Muscovite ideologies are rightish . there are many books about UPA ideology which was mainly developed by Ukrainian Jews, and you can easy find this information.

    I think Putin and Hitler used very different tactics.

    Hitler took power much faster and with greater violence. Not to say Putin doesn't use violence, he had his political rival Nemtsov killed, as just one example.

    And Putin still tries to fake democracy, while Hitler didn't even bother to pretend to do so.
