This chapter reconstructs the schisms that emerged between the officials charged with governing the borderlands' diverse populations and notes the ultimate victory in this debate of strident de-polonizers. It shows how Little Russian activists experienced new pressure from the centralizing state to explain how their activities benefited the empire—and to clarify their relationship with the Russian heartland and the imperial regime. But it also argues that state–society dynamics in the southwest, where Little Russian activists could claim that their activities undermined Polish influence and promoted the faith and the values that underpinned a unified East Slavic civilization, diverged from the general pattern described by the historian Darius Staliunas.

Keywords:   Polish revolt, de-polonizers, state–society dynamics, Little Russian activists, imperial regime, Polish influence
