The article analyzes the conditions of stay and the moral condition of the interned Ukrainian battleship in the Wadowice camp (Poland). It was proved that the life of Ukrainian soldiers was marked by considerable difficulties due to its overcrowding of the camp, a rather tight regime of keeping interned, limiting the ability to temporarily leave the camp, the unpreparedness of the camp commandant's office to go to a meeting with the interned in solving their most pressing problems. Internee’s reduced food soldering, and sometimes even delivered spoiled products; They were so devoid of soap, they were so devoid of soap; the camp still had a group of captive Red Army soldiers with Bolshevik agitators in their environment; There was a prohibition of singing songs (outside the camp, when going to study, etc.). All this was aggravated by dissatisfaction, hostility, and even hostile attitude to interned Ukrainian soldiers on the part of the individual officers of the campus (sometimes even offensive attitude to the interned), the petty intrusion of the commandant of the camp into the internal life of Ukrainian warfare. All this led to the demoralization of the part of the interned Ukrainian battleship, which did not have stable national-state feelings. One of the manifestations of this was the desertion of several dozen interned camps, including and officers. In these conditions, it was imperative to consolidate the moral spirit of the interned, as the cultural-educational divisions of the divisions were cared for. The creation of positive values for the interned was called the theater, in which the actions of actors-amateurs regularly offered battles for Ukrainian dramatists. The YMCA camp branch, which, despite the anti-Ukrainian position of its head, objectively changed the lives of the interned for the better, provided significant assistance to the interned.
