Hetalia FanArt: Polish-Ukrainian Relations by AtreJane Hetalia FanArt: Polish-Ukrainian Relations by AtreJane

Artist Comment:


So. At last I have ended this Work. I have lost about 6 months. Don't ask me why I was so slow... You see, I did not want to be in hurry.
The main aim of this work: I wanted to try to draw smth without any use of textures, ornaments etc.. You know... The Art is considered as high level art only when the artist uses his hands, without using of different textures and other shit in the work.
So I tried to check my level. I guess I had success. Everything is made by my hands, even ornament on the dress and flowers, and water, and sky.. :D
So now I should to learn to draw poses and architecture without using of tutorials, photos etc.
The Dress of Ukraine exists in Reality. This is the work of Ukrainian Designer Oksana Polonec: [link] [link]

Historical part


Polish - Ukrainian Friendship
Chronology of the relationships and some short main facts in the relations:

1. Poland and Ukraine were born on the base of the Slavic tribe named “Polans”
Poland: West Polans and union of neighboring tribes
Ukraine: East Polans and union of neighboring tribes

2. Marriage of Kyivan Grand Prince Swiatopolk 1 and Polish Princess the daughter of Polish King Boleslaw 1 the Brave. (XI century)

3. Wars between Poland and Ukraine occurred in the 1340s after the royal line in Ukraine failed. The King of Poland wishing to rule both countries.

4. 1349 - 1501 Part of Ukraine became Polish property.

4. 1501 - 1654 the Union of Ukraine and Poland under polish Crown in Commonwealth between GDL and Poland.
These union is remembered by conflicts and peaceful interludes, common wars against Turkey, Russia etc and wars between each other of course (uprisings in Ukraine).

5. XVIII century Ukraine and Poland lost their freedom and were divided.
Poland was divided between Prussia, Austria, Russia.
Ukraine was divided between Austria and Russia.


6. XVIII - XX century Ukraine and Poland fought for freedom with each others support.
This fight was interspersed with peaceful interludes and conflicts between Poles and Ukrainians :

7. XX century - 1989 year.
Poland got Independence and had great conflict with Ukraine again because the Polish tried to rebuild a Union with Ukraine.
1918-1919 - First Polish-Ukrainian Conflict because of West Ukraine and East Poland (Territorial disputes)
On April 1920 an alliance was made between Poland and Ukraine against Bolshevik Russia.
1942-1947 - Second Polish-Ukrainian Conflict because of West Ukraine and East Poland (Territorial disputes)


Eventually both countries were taken forcibly under control of the USSR .
Ukraine was absorbed into the USSR. Poland was notionally kept as independent country.

8. September 1989 year
The plenipotentiary of Polish Government came to Kyiv with the aim of rebuilding the relationships between the two countries. Since then there has been peace between the two countries.

9. 1991 year
Poland was the FIRST country that accepted Ukrainian Independence.

9. Nowadays
Poland is one country that supports Ukraine unconditionally. Poland actively protects Ukraine on an international level and protects Ukraine from Russian aggression e.g. the accusations about stealing Gas (as it was in first part of 2012) That is why nowadays Poland is called the counsellor of Ukraine in EU

10. In 2012
the Polish -Ukrainian relationships grew stronger.
The different social polls in Ukraine shows that more and more Ukrainians began to see an ally in Poland.
Poland is one country that punishes its people if they display prejudice towards Ukrainians (Ukrainophobia)


p.s. Polish and Ukrainian language have 65% (by other information 70%) of common Vocabulary.
(Between Russian and Ukrainian is only 63% of common vocabulary)

Przepięknie Ci to wyszło :) Jestem pod wrażeniem, zwłaszcza strojów i architektury. 
W sumie to nie wiedziałam, że i Ukraińcy się od plemion Polan wywodzą, ale to ładnie współgra z legendą o trzech braciach: Lechu, Czechu i Rusie ;) Niech nasze relacje będą coraz lepsze ;) Pozdrawiam

AtreJane Featured By Owner Mar 14, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
what have I to think?
They are close partners were and are still through the history.. Even in the case of Ukraine Hungary always helped Poland.
But thanks to this relationships, Hungary recognised Ukraine after Poland as Independent country. Poland began to respect Ukraine, and Hungary began too after that.

Sounds wonderful!

Although sadly, some people like to play up the times when Poland fought Ukraine in bloody wars, like this one: [link]

Which is considered a classic in Poland but hated in Ukraine. :(

Well.. we have such books too.. And it is true.. after Pospolita times, Poles blamed Ukrainians in the crush of Poland.. and this was till 1989.. in 1989 Polish Government decided to stop it and began to build friendship with us. Also Poland accepted the fact, that not only Ukrainians are guilty in the crush. IF Polish Government was not such egoistic in the case of Ukraine, there would not be war between Ukrainians and Poles, and Pospolita would never fall.
But we have problem still. Ukraine is still ruled by communistic, pro-Russian politics.. So this friendship is being built hard.. But anyway, normal Ukrainians, as me, have their own mind and can analyse the situation, read the weekly press etc. . I have already understood, that Poles has been changed, they don't not want us to be their slaves or to be the part of their country. In contrary, the Poles are most kind neighbours to us now, and oficially Poland can be called now even FRIEND of Ukraine. Also I speak with Poles, they are really more normal than Russians, for example. They don't blame us, don't humble us because of ethnic, history, or language. Yes, we still have idiots, and Poland has them.. But mostly we are building normal relations..

This picture is one of my favourite of Ukraine and Poland. I'm in love with their faces and clothes (they're wearing each other's national colours). U did great think with backround, connecting two capitols of our countries. The light colourful colours makes drawing even more joyful. And also important is your list of connections between Poland and Ukraine through the years, it's really cute thing :dummy:
