movement of poets in 1920's Ukraine. Despite the populist and propagandistic impulses of Communism, the neoclassical (neoclassicism) movement stressed the production of 'high art' to an educated and highly literate audience. Zerov, particularly, eschewed contemporary politics in his poetry, focusing on aesthetic and historical classical themes under a tight and difficult poetical structure. This approach eventually proved fatal, as Zerov, along with many other Ukrainian writers of the period, was later sent to Solovki prison camp and later executed. '''Alemdar Mustafa Pasha''' (also called '''Bairaktar Mustafa Pasha''') was an Ottoman (Ottoman Empire) military commander and a Grand Vizier born in Khotyn in Turkish-occupied Ukraine in 1765. Both ''alemdar'' and ''bairaktar'' mean "the standard bearer" and were the names given to the same rank in the Janissary corps. While Ottoman Bessarabia corresponded mainly to what now is known as Budjak and is part of Ukraine (along the Black Sea south of Moldova), the Russians applied the name ''Bessarabia'' to the entire annexed territory. Although this usage was ahistorical when first adopted, ''Bessarabia'' has come to refer more commonly to the so-named portion of the Russian Empire than to the older Ottoman Bessarabia. Thus one sees usages such as "1812... Treaty of Bucharest (Treaty of Bucharest, 1812) grants Russia control of eastern Moldova or Bessarabia, the area between the River Prut and the west bank of the Dniester," Commons:Category:Ukraine WikiPedia:Ukraine Dmoz:Regional Europe Ukraine
