The website, Ukraine in 1917-1924, says more than 200,000 people were combatants in the Ukrainian armies (Armed forces of the Central Council, the Army of the Ukrainian People's Republic, the Army of the Ukrainian State). The website has documented more than 16,000 people who were involved in the fight for Ukraine's independence. According to various estimates, documents containing approximately 30-40 thousand names of Ukrainian soldiers are available in Ukrainian and foreign archives. theoretically, It is possible, therefore, to establish the names of 15-20% of the personnel of Ukrainian troops for the period 1917-1924.


The database has been compiled from various sources since 2008. The unit of account of the database is not a document, but a person. Therefore, one name may contain information collected from one or more sources (sometimes up to 10).


The database provides the following information on participants: name, unit of service, rank, birthdate, birth place, death date, cause of death, place of death and place of burial. Information varies for each person, naturally.


While the website is in English, and can be searched in English, the information  is in Ukrainian when you click on the brown name so you may need to use Google translate  https://translate.google.com/  or Deep L translator https://www.deepl.com/en/translator
