(p.275) Epilogue
The Soviet-Polish Peace of 1921 and the Creation of Interwar Europe

Jerzy Borzęcki

Yale University Press

This epilogue presents some final thoughts about the Soviet–Polish peace treaty, which marked the end of a two-year military and diplomatic conflict, with each side getting what it wanted. The Poles obtained what they viewed as Polish ethnic territory in the Borderlands, together with a strategic defensive line. The Soviets secured their power over most of the Ukrainian and Belarusian ethnic territories, which were to be held on their own terms in the absence of any further pressure from Polish federalism.

Keywords:   Soviet–Polish peace, diplomatic conflict, military conflict, Poland, Borderlands, ethnic territory, Ukraine, Belarus, federalism
