2. Beginning of the century: the turbulent era of transformations

  • What were the main trends of development of Ukrainian lands in the early twentieth century.?
  • Describe each of them in their own words.

In the early twentieth century. Ukrainian people have had their state. His land was redistributed between the Russian Empire and Austria-Hungary monarchy. Economic, political and cultural processes in each regions largely determined by the peculiarities of the state of the which they belonged. The limit for centuries been a characteristic of the Ukrainian lands completion of the industrial revolution and the transition to industrialization * essence of which was to build large-scale machine industry, quality changes in economic structure (primarily industry had prevail over agriculture, heavy industry and over light).
9These sweeping, dramatic changes took place in extremely difficult conditions, since both states, like most countries, 1900-1903 biennium survived the economic crisis, 1904-1908 biennium depression had an effect, and only in 1910-1914 biennium - Economic inspiration.
Movement to industrial society accompanied by contradictory processes modernization social and daily life.
If a feature of economic life of the leading European countries at the beginning of the century was the completion of the modernization of society, then The Russian Empire and Austro-Hungarian monarchy were still at the stage beginning of reforms. It gave modernization in these countries accelerated overtaking nature and indication to some disparities in economic and social development: the lag of industrial agriculture, the sharp population stratification, social tension and more.
Despite the rapid pace of industrial development, the Ukrainian lands, as state to which they belonged, remained relatively underdeveloped in technical-economic aspect. While industrial development in Ukrainian lands in the early XX century. was accelerated, and if leave the opportunities opened by the then level of science, engineering, culture, we must admit that the Ukrainian economy has not happened sufficient qualitative changes. Industrialization has not been completed, the vacation The First World War.

  • Compare Naddniprianshchyna and economic development of Western Ukraine in the early twentieth century.


Modernization process in the Dnieper and Western Ukraine began almost simultaneously, but his progress in these areas had its own characteristics and dynamics.
In the early twentieth century. Ukraine became a dissertation on primary coal and metallurgical region of the Russian Empire with large industrial centers: Donetsk metallurgical coal, Rig Nikopol and iron and manganese pools, Southwest sugar region. The economy is increasingly integrated into the all, expanding ties with other regions of the country. However, their economic development was controversial, because their share accounted for 70% of raw materials extraction and only 15% of finished products of the Russian Empire. And because the cost of finished goods is much higher than prices for raw materials, the Russian economy received from this great economic benefits. Moreover, most people lived in the village, so agricultural products industry prevailed over goods. It is influenced by social and community development.

West-land belonged to the economic aspect the poorest in Europe. The most developed industries are: oil, wood, beverage, brown coal, rock salt, mineral wax, developed metal processing and engineering. Continued to develop traditional sector Industry: textile, leather, tobacco, paper, glass, ceramic, and the production of paints, soap, soda, dominated shallow craft type businesses. The most common industry remained huralnytstvo. However, application of advanced technology in these areas was extremely slow. Similarly, much slower and occurred changes in the social sphere.
More developed in the industrial aspect of Dnieper, like most industrial areas of the world in 1900-1903 biennium appeared in economic crisis, which manifested in layoffs, reducing jobs, lowering wages, increasing working hours, increasing unemployment etc.. Economic growth was again only 1910-1914 biennium Then significantly increased coal production, production of pig iron and steel. At the time, Dnepr Ukraine produced almost 70% of heavy industry and 80-85% sugar all over Russia.
In agriculture, the Ukrainian lands remained landowner Zemo-levolodinnya. However, in terms of development of capitalism constantly there was a process of social decomposition peasants: some rich, others bidnily. Since 1906, with agrarian reform in the guise of Ukraine, briefly zmitsnyuvalas peasant private land ownership and develop, market relations. In the Dnieper wealthy farmers amounted to about a quarter of the rural population in West Land 2 / 5 of all farms were considered wealthy. Simultaneously almost half of all farms in Ukraine were considered bidnyatskymy: their land does not exceed 3 acres * of Western lands and 5 acres in the guise of.
As in the Dnieper, and at Western domination semi-feudal forms of economic and obezzemelyuvannya most peasantry created more cheap labor, which is not found demand. The result was the emigration of rural population in the Caucasus Far East, Siberia and the United States, Canada, Brazil, Argentina and other countries.

  • What was the position of Ukrainian lands in the First World War?

In the late nineteenth century. - In the early twentieth century. in the world are formed two military-political blocs: the Triple Entente and the union. After a series of local armed conflicts 38 states involved in the First World war, which killed 10 million people and more than 20 million were hurt. The war led to the disintegration of large states such as Austria-Hungary and Russia. The map of Europe, new independent country.
Do not bypass these processes and Ukraine, which during World War II became the focus of geopolitical interests of three countries (Germany, Austria-Hungary, Russia) and the theater of military operations. The burden of the war sharply felt the Ukrainian people, in the absence of their own country, which would protect his specific interests, appeared in two opposing camps. About 3.5 million Ukrainian in the Russian army and 250-300 thousand in Austrian troops fought and died for foreign interest to them. But the worst was that the children of the same people, two redistributed States were forced to kill one another.
Much of the territory of Ukraine found itself at pryfrontoviy area, in Galicia, Bukovina, Transcarpathia, the tail there were fierce battles.
The war had a devastating impact on the economy of the warring countries are on the verge of exhaustion. Suffered the worst losses Russian Empire and subsequently the Ukrainian lands in its stock. Ceased foreign trade, stood vast Black Sea ports. War severed from the productive labor of millions of Ukrainian peasants and workers. Plants and factories kept increasing military orders and reduced production of Consumer Goods. Grim and its aftermath led to sharp resentment among many strata of the Ukrainian people, the growth of revolutionary liberation movement. In late 1916 - early 1917 overdue deep economic and political crisis. Ukrainian people, to withstand the early XX century. significant tests, quickly came to the new social shocks.
Terms of war led not to collapse the Ukrainian national liberation movement, but rather to strengthen it and exaltation. As he wrote Hrushevsky,? The general background All-Russian reaction and the revolutionary wave decline, compared with reduction of civil power, which gave itself felt in these years in citizenship of the Russian, Ukrainian movement with his unrelenting will to development and the fight became a phenomenon all the more vivid and politically.

Analyzing the situation in Ukraine in early 1917, scientists historians rightly claim that the Ukrainian revolution of 1917-1921 was a logical result of the liberation movement in Ukraine and due to a complex situation of the population in the Ukrainian lands exacerbated with the war and the general crisis in political systems Russian Empire and Austro-Hungarian monarchy.
In February, 1917 as a result of the victory of bourgeois-democratic Revolution in the Russian Empire was overthrown autocracy. Already the first notification caused democratic change in Ukrainian society striving to bring speedy resolution of urgent problems of national development.
