Lee, (whose article on how Navy soldiers were contaminated by Fukishima 
radiation, while on duty off the Japanese coast, was good reading) is a 
bit off on Poland being a "proto-nation".  Poland existed for a long 
while, before it was occupied and incorporated into the Russian Empire. 
  And Ukraine itself was, at different times, occupied by Poland and the 
Russian Empire (long before, and during the years of the 1917 Revolution).
