This concluding chapter chronicles the aftermath of the collapse of the Russian nationalist coalition in the southwestern borderlands. It shows how the epic battle that unfolded in mid-twentieth-century Ukraine was not only a contest between Moscow and Berlin; it also became intertwined with a much older—and more local—struggle to determine the future of the right bank and the identity of its inhabitants. Despite the disintegration of the Russian nationalist lobby, its ideals have survived and been adapted to the discourse of the different camps waging war in the borderlands. The Little Russian idea and the antiliberal, mass-oriented, organic nationalist movement to which it gave rise were creations of the tsarist old regime, but they proved remarkably adaptable to the violent new world that took shape in the twentieth century.

Keywords:   World War I, Ukraine, Moscow, Berlin, Russian nationalist lobby, Little Russian idea, nationalist movement, tsarist regime
