Abstract

The section considers some aspects of the formation of the 1st Cossack Rifle (Sirozhupan) Division, which was staffed by members of the Ukrainian community in the Freistadt camp (Austria-Hungary), and first of all those captured Ukrainians who belonged to the camp paramilitary society «Sich». The selection of volunteers to the division was carried out by a specially created Combat Command, which managed to form several marching huts from among the prisoners in a short time and transfer them to the temporary command of the Austrian military command for further reorganization and training in Volodymyr-Volynskyi. This reorganization, carried out by professional officers of the General Staff of Austria-Hungary, made it possible to in still in Ukrainian soldiers an understanding of the basics of military discipline. Documents show that this would not have been possible without active participation in the process of forming officers of the tsarist army – Ukrainians by origin and feelings. Later, the backbone of this division became one of the important foundations of the process of building a national army in the UPR.
