News reports from Turkey caused a big informational frenzy in Ukraine. We are talking about messages that say that in the Turkish archives "the originals of the texts of the Brest-Litovsk peace were found."
This is not a treaty that was signed by Soviet Russia, but a treaty that was signed in February 1918 by the so-called Central Powers and representatives of the Ukrainian People's Republic (UPR).
MFA of Ukraine:
For the first time on the Internet - the original of the ratification document signed by Hetman Skoropadsky and the originals of the texts of the Brest-Litovsk peace treaty, including with the Ottoman Empire. All documents are striking in quality, exquisite style of execution, artistic approach to calligraphy and a clear wax seal of the large state seal.
The same imprint of the seal, which the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine calls "state":
Another photo of the document:
The Ukrainian Foreign Ministry said that they had requested digital copies of the document from the Turkish side and "received them immediately." It is added that in total, the Turkish archive contains "thousands of pages of Ukrainian studies".
Information excitement in Ukraine about the "find" in the Turkish archive is connected with the fact that in Kiev they emphasize the "statehood of the act".
From the statement:
The central powers then recognized the UPR as an independent state.
In other words, for modern Ukraine, the interpretations of those who eventually suffered defeat in the First World War are extremely important. For information: Central Powers - Germany, Austria-Hungary, Ottoman Empire, Bulgarian Kingdom. It would be strange if these powers, who fought in WWI against Russia, supported its territorial integrity.
