At the same time, Lenin offered Poles the territories of Minsk, Zhytomyr, Khmelnytskyi (Khmelnytskyi Oblast), in what was described as mini "Brest (Treaty of Brest-Litovsk)"; Polish military leader Kazimierz Sosnkowski wrote that the territorial proposals of the Bolsheviks were much better than what the Poles had wanted to achieve.

That treaty also required for the Russian SFSR to recognize the Ukrainian People's Republic. Around that time the Vynnychenko's government established an economic agreement with the government of Belarus People's Republic through the Belarus Chamber of Commerce in Kiev. Alas, Vynnychenko's was replaced as well by the Socialist-Revolutionary government of Vsevolod Holubovych. wikipedia:Zhytomyr Commons:Category:Zhytomyr
