The Latest Effort of Establishing Diplomatic Contacts between the Kuban People's Republic and the UPR in the Spring of 1920 (A Document's Publication)

 

Abstract

Various diplomatic agreements are considered to be the most important proof of the attempt to develop friendly and mutually beneficial relations between the states. A young Ukrainian state has sought to establish diplomatic relations with the other countries, including Kuban National Republic. Most of the Kuban Cossacks (primarily the hereditary Black Sea inhabitants) have considered Kuban future as a federal part of an independent Ukraine.

Ukrainian­Kuban negotiations in summer, 1918, are considered as the beginning of rapprochement process. It has been completed with the Proceedings of the joint meeting of Kuban Exceeding Legation in the Caucasus. The signing of the equitable treaty between two independent states in spring­summer, 1920, has been expected immediately after the Protocol. This document is interesting in the fact, that it has reflected the real nature of the relations, that could be established between Kuban National Republic and Ukraine.
