The article analyzes the conditions of stay of interned Ukrainian soldiers in camp Stradom (Chenstokhova, Poland), in which, from December 1920 and until the fall of 1921, officers of the central institutions and headquarters of the Army of the Ukrainian People's Republic were in fact civilian (the headquarters of the Army, the General Staff and a part of the apparatus of the Ministry of War of the UPR). On the basis of the use of archival documents, the author concluded that the camps of the soldiers' everyday life were marked by significant difficulties associated with the almost complete absence of cash payments due to them. As a result, a significant number of married officers were forced to seek work outside the camp, which would at least temporarily improve their material condition, as well as save money for the winter time. And although in spring-summer of 1921 measures of the Ukrainian command helped to change the overall situation in the camp in a better way, as facilitated by the deployment of cultural and educational work, the officers still had to work. However, despite all the complexities of the camp's existence, interned Ukrainian soldiers in Chenstokhova continued to build their lives on a military basis, hoping for the restoration of the UPR.
