fighting+breaking

Ukrainian–Soviet War With major fighting breaking out in January 1919, the Ukrainians were pushed back and Kiev fell in February 1919. The government moved to Vinnytsia on February 5, 1919. A political trick took place that the Directory tried to play with Volodymyr Vynnychenko resignation to demonstrate a change of powers in the Ukrainian government and maybe attain a possible acceptance with the Entante. Symon Petliura has left the party and replaced the Vynnychenko's position who was too well known. Petliura has assumed the position of the Directory's chairman on February 11, 1919, a week after the government moved to Podillia (Podolie). The talks, alias, were proved to be without results. By May 1919, the Directory's armies had been squeezed into a narrow strip of land around Brody. Soviets then negotiated with the Poles, who were attacking the Ukrainians from behind, with this ceasefire, the Ukrainians were able to counter-attack and re-take Podilia and established a new capital in Kamianets-Podilskyi. In June, the UNR's forces were joined by the Western Ukrainian Republic's forces, who had been pushed out of Galicia (Galicia (Central Europe)) by the Poles. During that time (May 1919), General Denikin (Anton Denikin) and his white army launched an offensive against the Reds, during the summer and autumn of that year. The ''White Guards'' forces pushed the Reds out of the Central and Eastern Ukraine, thus, given the Directory another chance to reclaim Kiev. But the constant ''Red Guards'' counter-attacks and a deadly typhus epidemic caused the Petliura forces to be pushed out of Ukraine completely into the well established territory of Poland. A political crisis took place inside the Directory members of which were heavily interfered in the affairs of the Council of People's Ministers. Because of that Shvets and Makarenko were sent on the state matters abroad. Later in May 1920 on the request of Petliura to return they did not reply and were dismissed. Stanisław became starost of Skała in 1641, castellan of Halicz in 1646, castellan of Kamieniec (Kamianets-Podilskyi), voivode of Bracław Voivodship and Grand Regimentarz of the Crown in 1649, voivode of Ruthenian Voivodship in 1652, Field Crown Hetman from 1654 until February 19, 1657 and starost of Stobnice and Dymirsk. Gamrat was born in Samoklęski (Samoklęski, Subcarpathian Voivodeship) near Jasło (Jasło County), Poland. Early in his career, Gamrat was the royal secretary to Sigismund I the Old. Gamrat was bishop of Kamieniec (Kamianets-Podilskyi) since 1531, of Przemyśl since 1535, of Kraków since 1538 and simultaneously Archbishop of Gniezno since 1541. From 1540 until 1545 Marcin Kromer was Gamrat's secretary. Volodymyr Sichynskyi was born to the family of Ievtym Sitsinskyi in Kamianets-Podilskyi, Podolia guberniya, Russia (Imperial Russia), which is in present-day Ukraine. Around June 29, 1633 a strong Tatar group of Bucak Orde (about 1,000 strong) raided the area of Kamieniec Podolski (Kamianets-Podilskyi). This raid ended and the Tatars returned to Moldavia with their loot and jasyr. Meanwhile, the Commonwealth commander, Hetman Stanisław Koniecpolski was in Bar (Bar, Ukraine) and moved immediately in pursuit with 2,000 cavalry when the news reached him. The hetman crossed Dniestr river and entered the Ottoman territory of Moldavia, which has been the theatre of the previous Commonwealth-Ottoman war just a few decades earlier (the Moldavian Magnate Wars). The Tatars probably thought they were safe and slowed down thus allowing hetman to catch with them on July 4 near Sasowy Róg at river Prut. Several dozens of Tatars were killed and captured, rest dispersed. Among captives were several high rank Tatars and Khan Temir's son in law (Khan Temir, Kantymir – chief of Budjak Horde, a well known and ferocious Nogai Tatar (Nogai Horde) leader). Most of loot, all captives, cattle and horses were recovered. He was the son of Stanisław Przedbór Koniecpolski and Elżbieta Ligzianka (relative of hetman Jan Tarnowski). His wife was Anna Sroczycka, daughter of Stanisław Sroczycki (Stanislaw Sroczycki), voivode of Kamieniec (Kamianets-Podilskyi). This marriage brought into the Koniecpolscy family large estates (estate (house)) at Podolia. Life and career He was born into a Polish (Poles) catholic family in Bendery, Bessarabia in Imperial Russia, the fourth of four children of Czesław Spława-Neyman and Kazimiera Lutosławska. His family was Roman Catholic and Neyman served as an altar boy during his early childhood. Later, Neyman would become an agnostic. Neyman's family descended from a long line of Polish nobles and military heroes. He graduated from the Kamianets-Podilskyi gubernial gymnasium for boys in 1909 under the name ''Yuri Cheslavovich Neyman''.

A further large scale emigration of Lipkas to Ottoman controlled lands took place early in the 18th century, after the victory won by King Augustus II over the Polish-born King Stanisław Leszczyński, whom the Lipkas had supported in his war against the Saxon King.
