A warning to the Ukrainians against revenge agitation for Petlura is voiced by Vinitschenko, former Ukrainian Premier, who publishes an article on the subject in the Ukrainian paper “Dilo” of Lemberg.

“Judgment concerning Petlura’s position in regard to the Jewish pogroms in Ukrainia differs, and therefore his death is viewed variously. But none can deny that the Jewish mass pogroms are a black spot in the history of the Ukrainian revolution. Jews of all classes and sections suffered great injustice. Certain elements of Ukrainia exhibited the lowest instincts, inciting the population against the Jews by describing them as enemies of the national revival of Ukrainia,” Vinitschenko writes.
