Abstract

The article reconstructs the process of creation and specifics of the activities of the Inspectorate (General Inspectorate) of the Army of the Ukrainian People's Republic in 1920-1921, which became one of the important steps on the way to creating the institutional foundations of the armed forces of Ukraine in the modern era and increasing the level of combat readiness of its units and units. In September 1921, the commander of the 3rd Iron Rifle Division, Colonel-General Oleksandr Udovychenko, was appointed to the position of Inspector General of the UNR Troops, who was well acquainted with all the difficulties that the Ukrainian military had to face. Based on the results of his inspections of the camps, O. Udovychenko prepared reports in which he highlighted the actual condition of the internees (combat conditions of the units, living conditions, provision of clothing and food, moral and psychological condition and mood of the soldiers, the intensity of cultural and educational work in their environment, etc.). These reports were addressed to the Commander-in-Chief of the Armed Forces of the Ukrainian People's Republic and the Minister of War, allowing them to understand the real situation in the internment camps, and accordingly take the necessary measures to normalize it. During the entire period of internment, the inspector general exerted a powerful influence on all processes in the Army of the Ukrainian People's Republic, largely determining the path of its development.
