This article, written in 1989, tells the unknown and dramatic story of the conflict-ridden relationships between Russian and Ukrainian communists during the Civil War. The Bolsheviks were faced with an unexpected national revolution of the oppressed Ukrainian people. The great dilemma was what Ukraine should be: a part of the Soviet but “one and indivisible” Russia, as in the imperial past, or an independent Soviet state.
