November 11, 1945.

Dear Pavlo Theofanovych:

 

Officers delivering this letter to you have complete trust in my "military entourage." Please listen to information brought by them and get things going in this serious matter. I think it advisable for you to have those officers sent to that certain Mr. T. in order to find out at least what goes on there, and perhaps even to take direct measures. Although that man is not a disciplined person, perhaps you will be able to pull him up ... Perhaps you will have to come to us to deliberate this mysterious matter ... Mr. Mudry came to see me, and we discussed everything ... in the presence of Messrs. Revay, Baran, my son, and Bishop Mstyslav ... I hope to see you with good news in about a week or two. With best wishes. Yours, A. Livytsky.

Dear General:

 

... My best wishes to you and your Mrs. on the occasion of the Holiday, and I wish you success in your patriotic moves ... Don't be surprised and don't feel dejected, that it takes so long for promises to be kept. ... But, Christ is raised, Ukraine will rise, too, perhaps even in my lifetime, although I am beginning to weaken ... I went to Ulm and Augsburg to take care of official matters ... I have always had a high regard for you and I respect you sincerely. My best regards to Madam, Your A. Livytsky.

Dear General:

 

... In my opinion, the organization of a High Military Council will be welcomed. I have nothing against its personnel, with the exception of Captain B., who does not fit this thing because of the mistakes he has made, both through his own fault, and without ... General P. wants to see me after November 28. Sincere greetings to you. Your M. Omelanovych Pavlenko. November 19, 1945.

Dear General:

 

1. ... In the matter of the High Military Council, as per your letter of December 25, I am mailing invitations to members to the first meeting today...

3. The story with Munich Branch proves that our party politicians want to wreck every cause...

5. The nice officer Horoch completed the first course for non-commissioned officers in Ingoktadt, he retrained 30...

8. I am sending you two clippings (mine and Col. D's) from which you will see, General, that they are not leaving us in peace...

That is all for now, and I wish you a Merry Holiday. Yours, M. Om. Pavlenko.

Dear General:

 

Today, after long and sometimes very interesting debate, we finished our work (organization of the High Military Council) ... we reverted to the old position, as during the time of the UNC (General M. Omelanovych Pavlenko was Chairman of the High Military Council in the UNC–author).

 

Sincerely yours, M. Om. Pavlenko. January 16, 1946.

...................

Dear General:

 

One of the conventions raised the idea of renewing the activities of some of our institutions: to merge the Military Science and Military History Societies ... I take the liberty to request that you take part in this meeting ...

 

Respectfully, V. Petriv. July 27, 1947.

...................

Dear General:

 

... The whole trouble is with that "micro-politics" ...

 

Yours respectfully, V. Petriv. March 6, 1948.

...................

Dear General:

 

... I also read the draft on the High Military Council ... it's the old Austrian Hofkriegsrat which nearly buried Austria ... Well, when we get together we are going to talk about it My best wishes to you and your family.

 

Yours, V. Petriv. June 15, 1948.

Dear General:

 

Vsevolod Mykolayevych asked me to let you know that "he is going out of circulation" for some time because he is seriously ill and is now in the Servatius Srift Hospital. Doctors have found intestinal trouble caused by undernourishment ...

 

Sincerely yours, Tamara Petrova. (Wife of the late General Petriv).

...................

Dear General:

 

Could you kindly come to Augsburg this coming Sunday, June 20, at 12 noon. I will come to the station, and we could meet there ... There are some matters which I would like to discuss with you.

 

Sincerely yours, I. Mazepa. June 15, 1948.

Dear General:

 

In connection with renewed activities in various branches of the Executive Department of the Ukrainian National Council (Rada), I would like to talk to you concretely about the matter of ... Please come at your convenience, I will be in my office.

 

Sincerely yours, I. Mazepa. January 28, 1949.

...................

Ukrainian National Council. Executive Department. No. 36/49. February 7, 1949.

To Lieutenant-General P. Shandruk in Munich:

 

Dear General:

 

... With reference to your consent expressed to me in a conversation on February 1, the Executive Department decided at its meeting held on the 5th inst., to appoint you to the position of Chief of the General Staff ...

 

Chairman of the Executive Department, I. Mazepa.

...................

Dear Pavlo Theofanovych:

 

I received a letter from Mr. Mazepa in which he informs me that he would like to see me in person about his high appointment (as Prime Minister – author). I wish to accelerate this meeting because circumstances demand it, and the "community" is pressing. I had hoped that you would come over the holidays, but you evidently postponed the trip. If so, please take Isaac Prokhorovych (Mazepa – author) with you, even if you were only going to Ulm ... General V. started to behave so nicely that I have nothing against promoting him along with Gens. Udovychenko, Petriv, and Zagrodsky. The official representative of the Polish Government finally came to see me, and I had long talks with him in an atmosphere of mutual trust.

 

With best wishes, yours, (–) A. Livytsky.
