Piłsudski and in 1920 he took part in a common campaign against Kijów. In 1921 he was defeated by The Red Army and afterwards went into exile (1921).

In 1926 Dmytro Dontsov – one of the Ukrainian theoreticians – while analysing these defeats he published his work “Nationalism” where he included main assumptions of nationalism in a form of ten commandments and methods to achieve nationalist aims.

In 1920 The Ukrainian Military Organisation began to work in exile. It was founded by Ukrainian Sich Riflemen. In 1929 it joined the nationalist civil groups and at the congress in Vienna together with them created the Organisation of Ukrainian Nationalists (OUN) with Yevhen Konovalets as its leader.

When Adolph Hitler came to power, OUN followed the fascist and Mussolini's ideology.

June 30, 1941 — at Stepan Bandera's command they announced the foundation of Ukrainian Government in Lviv with Yaroslav Stetsko as the Prime Minister. Hitler regarded the government self-appointed and dissolved it. Bandera and other organisers were put in camps — mainly in Sachsenhausen-Oreanienburg — the others dispersed.

Roman Shukhevych also known as „Taras Chuprynka” – the leader of „Nachtigall” battalion, moved to Polesie where (after forcing other groups – Andriy Melnyk's faction leaded by Taras Boroviec known as Taras Bulba – to join him) on 12 October 1942 he created the Ukrainian Insurgent Army and took its lead. He was one of the main culprit of all murders in Volhynia, entire Eastern Frontiers and postwar Poland.

On 5 March 1950 he was found by USSR safety authority hiding in Biłohorszcze near Lviv and after a few shots, he was killed.

„The act of proclamation
By the Will of Ukrainian People
Organisation of Ukrainian Nationalists

proclaims the formation of Ukrainian Statehood

The Sovereign Ukrainian Government will guarantee Ukrainian nation order, unilateral development of all its powers and satisfaction of all its needs. OUN under the direction of Stepan Bandera calls to subjecting to National Government founded in Lviv led by Yaroslav Stetsko.

Glory to heroic German Army and to its Fuhrer Adolph Hitler!
