2. Hetmanship Skoropadsky II (1708-1722 biennium). ActivitySkoropadskyi in these conditions was very cautious. He tried in every waydemonstrate their loyalty to the king. It helped him retain power hetmanbut at the same time, the deployment of imperial policy contributed to limiting the Hetmanpower. However Skoropadskyi showed honesty and the best of their forcestried to protect the Ukrainian autonomy. Yes, he defended the emigrants and theirfamily never officially called a traitor Mazepa.

In social policy Skoropadskyi continued the policyIvan Mazepa. He distributed the land officers and monasteries.

Skoropadsky had over100 thousand subjects (monasteries - 60 thousand subjects).

I. Skoropads

 

In January 1721 Skoropadskyi, despite the poorhealth, went to Moscow to finally determine the status of HetmanRussian Empire. The impetus for the trip was the king's decree on the withdrawalgeneral office management zpid hetman.

While in Moscow a few monthsHetman visited the king's wards, talked with influential powers,hosted banquets, masquerade. However, the visit, the main purpose wasrequest to alleviate the situation Hetmanate not give the desired result andnot stopped further restrict the rights and liberties. Instead Skoropadskyireceived a decree establishing the Little Russian College (April 29, 1722). Itscreation was motivated by the fact that the king come complaints from people about the bribes andextortion, the Cossacks of retaking land, forests, mills, forced them to movein nationality, of the disorder in the general office of the military: "This isfor your own good? be under the Great-and upravlennyam court order tostop all the wrong judgments and hardship Little People ".

He soughtcomplaints in the Senate (the supreme regulatory authority of the Russian Empire) toLittle college violation of Ukrainian laws and traditions, insistedallow the election of a new hetman.

In August 1723 officer representatives of oppositionin the Cossack camp on the river Kolomak were called Kolomakskycholobytni addressed to the king, who demanded to cancel the imposedLittle college taxes and to allow elected hetman. When thesecholobytni was Peter, he ordered Mr. Polubotko imprison opposition and 15Ukrainian officers in the Peter and Paul Fortress. Not stand this state andinterrogation December 18, 1724 P.
