The Ruthenians of Eastern Galicia are to be drawn into the Ukrainian propaganda in connection with the Schwartzbard trial by the Semion Petlura League which was founded here for that purpose.

The league announced its intention to collect documents for the Schwartzbard trial and to raise funds for the expenses of the trial. It will also maintain Petlura’s family and plans to erect a monument on Petlura’s grave. The League states it will also publish Petlura’s biography and found schools and libraries and establish scholarships in Petlura’s name.
