A MAN OF IRON WILL

           Roman Shukhevych was the Supreme Commander of the Ukrainian Insurgent Army           ( Ukrainska Povstanska Armiya, the UPA ) and the chairman of the General Secretariat of the Ukrainian Supreme Liberation Council. Shukhevych began his nationalist activity at an early age, joining the Ukrainian Military Organization in 1923. In 1929 he joined the Organization of  the Ukrainian Nationalists and was active in its combat branch.

           As  the Supreme Commander of  the UPA, Shukhevych led the struggle of the Ukrainian insurgency against both the German and the Soviet occupations. It is largely due to Shukhevych’s organizational abilities and personal courage that the UPA carried on its struggle for the Ukrainian independence for years after the end of World War II. 

            The Soviet Ministry of Internal Affairs hunted Shukhevych for years. Only in March, 1950 the MVD troops found him and surrounded the house in which he was staying. Shukhevych died in a firefight with  the MVD troops on 5 March 1950. He was posthumously awarded the UPA’s highest decorations.

          Shortly before his death, Shukhevych said that if a nation will compromise with the enemy and agree to live in danger, instead of trying to defeat it, then such nation is doomed, it will gradually disappear from the face of the earth. Fortunately, we see gradual return of the names of true Ukrainian historian personalities to modern cultural life of Ukraine. In our native town the monument to Roman Shukhevych has been erected, which symbolize the struggle for independence.
