Colonel Bolbochan on the scales of Ukrainian history
Petro Bolbochan (1883-1919) became one of the most sought-after heroes of the First Liberation Struggle. Undoubtedly, the Ukrainian military commander who successfully acted against the Russians, including in Crimea, deserves respect and attention.
The event ended

However, the figure of Colonel Bolbochan is somewhat ambiguous. He had great merits and achievements but equally great defeats and failures. In the end, he was convicted and executed by the verdict of the military tribunal of the Ukrainian People's Republic - the enemies of Ukraine did not destroy him, but his own.

A prominent warlord or a random person?

How did his contemporaries evaluate him, and what do historians say about him?

On the occasion of the 140th anniversary of Pyotr Bolbochan, the Kyiv-Mohyla Business School invites everyone interested in this figure to a discussion during which we will discuss various aspects of Colonel Bolbochan's activities and his role in the events of 1918-1919.
