The Tatars of the Right-bank and Western Ukraine: little-known pages of Ukrainian-Tatar relations in the 14th-19th centuries.


July 4, at 3:30 pm in the National Museum of Ukrainian History, a lecture by the Tatars of the Right Bank and Western Ukraine will be held: little-known pages of Ukrainian-Tatar relations in the 14th-19th centuries. Ukrainian-Tatar relations are one of the central themes of the history of Ukraine. Unfortunately, for a long time the attention of researchers was concentrated mainly on its military aspects: Tatar raids and Cossack campaigns. Despite this, the Tartar population lived for hundreds of years with the ancestors of modern Ukrainians, forming a separate ethnographic group, which modern researchers call Western Tatars.
Western Tatars (also known as Polish, Lithuanian, Belarusian Tatars, Tartars, etc.) is a mysterious community formed as a result of the settlement of the Tatars on the lands of the Grand Duchy of Lithuania and the Kingdom of Poland during the XIV-XVI centuries. Almost half a millennium, their descendants lived on the lands of modern Lithuania, Belarus, Ukraine and Poland, preserving the Muslim faith, their own customs and self-consciousness. The Tatars were in the military service of the Kings of the Commonwealth, and also formed separate Tartar or Pyatigorian banners fr om such influential magnates as Ostroh, Zaslavsky, Koretsk, Senyavsky, Vyshnevetsky, and others. Although this community was not too numerous, it left a striking footprint in the history of Eastern Europe.
