In 1920 Budyonny's Cavalry Army took part in the invasion of Poland in the Polish-Soviet War, in which it was quite successful at first, pushing Polish forces out of Ukraine (1920 Kiev Offensive) and later breaking through Polish southern frontlines. However later the Bolsheviks forces sustained a heavy defeat in the Battle of Warsaw (Battle of Warsaw (1920)), mainly because Budyonny's Army was bogged down at Lwów (Lviv). After his army was defeated in the Battle of Komarów (Battle of Komarow) (one of the biggest cavalry battles in history), Budyonny was then sent south to fight the Whites in Ukraine and the Crimea. Despite the defeat in Poland, he was one of Soviet Russia's military heroes by the end of the Civil War. In July–September 1941, Budyonny was Commander-in-Chief (главком, ''glavkom'') of the Soviet armed forces of the Southwestern Direction (Southwestern (Soviet Southwestern Front) and Southern (Soviet Southwestern Front) Fronts) facing the German (Nazi Germany) invasion of Ukraine. This invasion began as part of Germany's Operation Barbarossa which was launched on June 22. Operating under strict orders from Stalin (who attempted to micromanage the war in the early stages) to not retreat under any circumstances, Budyonny's forces were eventually surrounded during the Battle of Uman and the Battle of Kiev (Battle of Kiev (1941)). The disasters which followed the encirclement cost the Soviet Union 1.5 million men killed or taken prisoner. This was one of the largest encirclements in military history. After the November Uprising, the tsars (tsar), titled also as Polish kings, adapted the Order of the White Eagle (Order of the White Eagle (Poland)) with blue ribbon, well accepted in Russia. Archangel, the symbol of Ukraine, joined the Eagle and Pahonia during the January Uprising. The Poles conscientiously collected coins from the pre-partitions period with the eagle on their obverse and reverse. The symbol of the eagle, often with Pahonia, appeared on numerous flags and emblems of the uprising.
