The Ukrainian Insurgent Army in Czechoslovakia

Implementation: 2017–2019

Head of project: David Svoboda

Other members of the project team: Jaromír Kalus, Tomáš Řepa

Description of project: The project explores Ukrainian anti-Soviet resistance during World War II and during the Cold War. It focuses on the radical actions of supporters of Ukrainian integral nationalism in the years 1939–1950. The activities of this movement also marginally affected the post-war Czechoslovakia, where the UIA armed forces also operated. The project examines the complex circumstances of the “raids” on Czechoslovak territory.
