Słowa kluczowe: stosunki etniczne, Polacy, Ukraińcy
AbstraktThe Polish-Ukrainian neighbourhood was of great significance to both nations for many reasons:
1. Polish-Ukrainian border territory, which included the lands inhabited by both ethnic
groups in 10%, constituted approximately 38% of the area and 30% of the population of Poland. The proportions were comparable for the Ukrainian part;
2. National Identification, eąualled with citizenship would often write off ”the culture of little homelands”, which was so characteristic of the border territory;
3. There was a considerable diversity in the social and professional structure of both ethnic groups;
4. The World War I (1918-1919) had serious anti-integration conseąuences although it
did not manage to eliminate the”culture of little homelands” altogether.
The alliance between Piłsudski and Petlura (1920-1921) did not alter the anti-Polish views and reactions of many Ukrainians from the territory of former Galicia. The enclosed reports (Appendix 1-3) contain the data about good living conditions for Ukrainian soldiers in intemment camps that were created after the treaty in Riga, and also about the political crisis among Ukrainian emigration and Bolshevik influences.
