Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, although being de-facto a country of 3 peoples with Ukrainians being the most numerous, de jure it was a country of 2 peoples. Which, of course, led to lots of problems and bloodshed. Cossacs fought for themselves and their freedom in the first place. It was either you live a semi-military cossac lifestyle or you are a slave (a serf).

Regarding the origin of the Cossacs, it is also worth mentioning that in 1528 there was a nation-wide nobility census in the Grand duchy of Lithuania (Popys Zemskyi). As a result, some nobility, who could not prove their origin, or (more commonly) made wrong enemies at the court, were stripped of their rank and land. Those guys also joined the cossacks and they certainly held no love for the government of Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth.

There is a big oversimplification in calling the magnates of Ukraine 'polish aristocrats', yes they were the rulling class in a state entity that today is quite misleadingly called 'Poland' but they were predominantly of ruthenian origin. Most of them adopted polish language and catholic faith in the seventeenth century. What made them polish by those days standards was being the citizens of the Commonwealth but even after they 'fully' polonised they still described themselves as 'gente ruthenus natione polonus' that can be translated to 'of ruthenian origin nationality polish', the main thing is that your ethnicity was far less important for the people of this region than your class. For example in the XVI century a calvin noble from western Poland would feel much more fraternity with his ruthenian speaking orthodox counterpart from today Ukraine than with a peasant or a burgher from his surroundings. Fast forwarding to the XIX century we can see that when your ethinicty becomes much larger factor in your national identification there are examples of many families in which brothers and sisters are choosing different nationalities (polish and ukraninian, polish and belarussian or polish and lithuanian). It is also worth mentioning that polonisation of the eastern nobility wasn't aggresive at all and it would be best to describe the process as: 'ruthenian nobility polonised itself' rather than 'ruthenian nobility was polonised'. I know this comment is also a big oversimplification but any has to be as there have been tens of books written about the topic.
@agentfundacji1 Жыл бұрын
It is simplified but right in its core issue which is that being of noble origin was something much more important to people in early modern period and the so-called ‘polonisation’ of ruthenian aristocracy and nobility was a complicated process and cannot be described in XIX century fashion as ‘Ukrainians and Belorussians taking polish identity’. Also you point out, correctly I believe that being a ‘Pole’ in let’s say XVIII century meant something really different that in second half of the XIX, especially after January uprising.

Orthodox people were oppressed in the Commonwealth, for example there is a lot of evidence that you could have problems with obtaining handicraft master status in cities, a lot of Orthodox churches were forcely closed and their land taken as only the Union Church at one moment has become the only one legal non-Catholic church in the country, and a lot more stuff that *forced* you to become Catholic and polonise. Some have done so because they honestly wanted so.

@@theowlx7_alex245 It technically was illegal but it wasn't really oppression by the state which had very little authority. It was mostly the catholic church as an institution which can be accused of those practises and individual noblemen who in practice up to the middle of XVII century had religious freedom (more than it they had right to enforce any denomination on their subject and many newly converted to catholisism ruthenian nobles tried to excersise it). Even after the middle of XVII it is right even the orthodox noblemen lost their privileges but it was after khmelnitsky uprising. There is one big exception to what I am talking and that is the reign of King Zygmunt III who was a zealous catholic and actively supported policies which I must repeat were mostly practice of the church and individual (not meaning scarce in number) noblemen.

I see what you did at the beginning. ;-) Of course, it's just scratching the surface of an immensely complex and complicated topic (several topics, really). You could make an entire episode about the Church Union of Brest (1596) and how it contributed to the rise of tensions in Ukraine, or create a whole series taking a closer look at the Grand Duchy of Lithuania from its origins. One thing that I would really like to add was in the part when you discussed the various likely roots of the egalitarian, "democratic" culture of the Cossacks. I'd say that, paradoxically, the political culture of the Polish-Lithuanian nobility was among these roots. The members of _szlachta_ not only enjoyed great privileges but were also very numerous (the lowest of the very varied estimates put them at least at 5% of the whole population, way above the European average) and were all legally equal (no additional "tiers" among the aristocracy, with different rights and privileges). That meant (among other things) that tens of thousands of nobles, many of them simple farmers, took a direct part in electing their kings (who in turn could do very little without the approval of the Sejm - the parliament of the Commonwealth). Many Cossacks found this system attractive and wanted to participate in it, but were harshly denied access. In 1632 a delegation of Cossacks showed up at the special session of the Sejm (known as the convocation), which was preparing for the next royal election, and demanded to take part in it, as they were "the members of the Commonwealth" too. The Grand Chancellor of Lithuania, Albrycht Stanisław Radziwiłł supposedly told them that they may be "members" of the Commonwealth but are to it like fingernails and hair to the human body - need to be cut from time to time, once they grew too much. Well, as we can see that attitude backfired a bit...

The Rada existed back in the days of Rus, oddly enough, the roots lie in the official historical legend those times of the Polish nobility and Cossacks. Both of them traced their history back to the Scythians, and there it was known from written Greek sources that there was democracy among sword owners. Kossak considered any Ruthenian potentially equal after using the social elevator in the form of an army. While the Polish nobility considered a Pole not a nobleman to be dirt, as in principle, a Rusyn Lithuanian, and then they really did not like social elevators. That is, the Cossacks approached the original. The more people with full civil rights, the less power each representative has. That is, the Polish nobility was worried about the price of a vote.

Otaman and Hetman were two different things. Otaman(Ataman) was the elected ruler of Zaporozhian Sich. Sich itself was a military camp where Cossacks gathered e.g. before planned military campaigns. Sich was located in different places throughout the history. Hetman title meant simply the leader of the army - there were hetmans in Polish and Lithuanian armies as well. Khmelnytskyi never was an Otaman. He fled to the Sich and was proclaimed as a Hetman - the military leader for the upcoming new military campaign. The state formed by Khmelnyskyi - the Hetmanate (the real name of the state was Zaporozhian Host). But there was still another state - the original Zaporozhian Host (led by Otaman). And the relation between Hetmanate and original Zaporozhian Host were not always good.

@Ka1 There is no need for any ket-men/kut-men, moreover this is not a logical etymology. I did not find Cuman - ketmen in the Codex Cumanicus. The Czechs have been using the term hetman since the 13th century (zemský hejtman), without any Turks. The Czech word "hejtman" is derived from the Old High German "hauptmann" ("haupt" means "chief" or "head", "mann" - "man"), and the Polish "hetman" - from the Middle Low German "hōd-man" (in the XIV-XV centuries, was used the variant "etman", from the XV century - "hetman"). In the German language of that time, this word had the meaning "commander of an armed detachment"

Anyway, you've made this interesting enough that I was sad it ended so soon. Of course I'm going to sub--I wouldn't want to miss the next one.

An interesting thing, completly ommitted, was the fact that Khmielnitsky was meeting often with then Polish king (Vladislaus IV) in preparation for a war with Tatars and Turkey (which would be very beneficial for Cossacks, especially increasing their autonomy). Vladislaus was seen as friendly to Cossacks, but his plans for war were ultimately rejected by the parliament. There are sings that he was actually at least verbally supportive of the planned uprising - he publically told to Cossacks complaining about their rights "don't you have sabres at your side?" while the parliament was by far more oppressive ("you are like nails to be cut"). There is little historical evidence, but it could be that Khmenitsky hoped for support of Vladislaus IV of some sort. Khmelnitsky did allegedly have a royal banner and a sign of hetman office from king. Vladuslaus died however just as the uprising begun and had no chance to do anything.

There's actually a really nice Polish movie from the 90', "With Fire and Sword", well known both in Poland and in Ukraine (it depicts both quite nicely both sides of the 1648 civil war) that can be found on youtube with english subtitles: kzbin.info/www/bejne/i36okHmDmJmSiKs The quality isn't perfect, but I'm sure it can be found elswhere, too. For people from the "region" who at least hear the difference between the languages, it may be even more interesting as it's 50-50 in Polish and in Ukraininan and the changes of the language that the characters use add an extra layer to the movie, but the movie should be clear to anyone anyway.
