The article reconstructs public and political activity of the retired Ukrainian general Mykola Shapoval in France (1925-1948). After he had moved to Paris, Shapoval edited newspaper «The Ukrainian Labourer», participated in activities of local branches of Ukrainian Socialist-Revolutionary Party and represented himself as a publicist and translator. Due to his irreconcilable opposition to the State Centre of Ukrainian National Republic (UNR) in exile, Mykola Shapoval's views and actions were influenced by the Bolshevik secret agencies in France, particularly Mykhaylo Volodin, whom he assisted in getting the confidential information about Symon Petlura. Shapoval continued his dissent against Ukrainian emigrants even after Petlura's assassination in 1926. It caused tension and overall negative attitude towards the general among Ukrainian emigrant cultural groups in Paris. Nonetheless, the announced boycott did not change Shapoval's mindset, which had been profoundly shaped by the Soviet ideology by the time.
