On February 12, 1918, under the leadership of the Bolsheviks, the IV regional congress of the Donetsk-Kryvyy Rih Basin councils decided to separate it from an independent Donetsk-Kryvyy Rih republic. Separated from Ukraine, the DKR was positioned for just over a month.
Already in our time this fairly ordinary for that time the event was used in political games. In this case, not only artificially lengthened the time of its existence, ignored the contradictory moments in its formation, but also to the satisfaction of the modern political moment, the content of those goals and tasks declared by its leaders was distorted.
Under what conditions was the DKR established and when it returned to the Soviet Ukraine?
What arguments were put forward by its supporters? What are they fundamentally different from how contemporary collaborators explain their actions in the occupied Russia by the ORDLO?
So typical was the formation for that time, and what does the definition of "southern republics" mean? How many republics there were, and why about most of them almost no one knows nothing?
Why was the existence of the RKR fundamentally impossible after the spring of 1918?
On these and other questions you can hear the answer and discuss the lectures by Gennadiy Efimenko, Candidate of Sciences, Senior Researcher at the Institute of Ukrainian History of the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine.
Beginning: February 10, at 14:00.
The event will take place as part of the LIKBEZ project. Lessons from history at the National Museum of History of Ukraine (4th floor).
