Message L.P. Beria to the Chief of the Political Directorate of the Red Army L.3. Mehlis on the creation of the German command on the territory of Ukraine "Ukrainian armies" and the formation of punitive detachments of persons of Ukrainian nationality and deserters

19th of January 1942

Top secret


NKO USSR Comrade Mehlis


According to the intelligence data received by the NKVD of the Ukrainian SSR in December [last] [ode], the German military command is carrying out a number of activities with the aim of creating a “Ukrainian army” in the occupied territory of the Ukrainian SSR. On the right bank of Ukraine, an account has already been taken of the military-obliged military age of Ukrainian nationality.

In the Poltava and Chernihiv regions, the German authorities account for military service of Ukrainians aged from 16 to 50 years.

Captured commanders of the Red Army of Ukrainian nationality are concentrated in special camps. Special military schools are formed in these camps, where prisoners of war are trained in tactics, combatant, subversive, and automaking.

According to the data of 19 in November 1941 in the city of Novograd-Volynsk, Zhytomyr region, a special school was created from a prisoner of war of the commanding staff of the Red Army of Ukrainian nationality. The contingent of students of this school covers the average commanders from lieutenant to captain. These military are contained in general terms. They are not allowed to walk freely and wear weapons. They attend classes in their usual form, but without insignia.

Along with this, the German military authorities began to form punitive detachments of Ukrainian nationalities. In some places, these units call themselves "Ukrainian Cossacks." Basically, they are recruited from the Ukrainians, deserting from the Red Army, and from the local nationalist elements.

At the direction of the German authorities, punitive detachments are fighting with the guerrillas and are engaged in catching and destroying persons undesirable to the German authorities. The quantitative composition of these units ranges from 250 to 400 people. They are armed with Russian rifles, dressed in Red Army overcoats without buttonholes and wearing a yellow-blue triangle on their right sleeve.

The German authorities represent these forces unlimited rights, up to the execution.

In the Lozovaya district of the Kharkiv region, a punitive detachment consisting of Ukrainian deserters is operating. Members of the squad are on duty on the roads, detain suspicious persons and shoot those who do not have documents.

In the town of Proskurov, Kamenetz-Podolsk region, a punitive detachment of 250 people is created under the police force. Several dozen deserters have already expressed their consent to join the squad.

In the villages of the Cherkassy region of the Kiev region, several punitive units of 100-150 people were created to fight partisans.

In Poltava, the police recruited up to 400 local people.

Note. The German commanders of the frontline rear areas and field commandant's offices of the rear army area GA “Yug” were the first to take the initiative to recruit security teams from local residents of the central and eastern regions of Ukraine. In Ukraine, until December 1941, the first such formations were organized in Rivne and Zhytomyr regions. There were also formations in the Chernihiv, Poltava, Stalin (now Donetsk), Sumy, Kharkiv and Voroshilovgrad regions. In accordance with the order of the Chief of the Operational Department of the State Enterprise “South” of 14 in November 1941, these militias received the status of “auxiliary forces from the local population” (German. Hilfskrafte aus einheimische Einwohner) and were divided into auxiliary security teams (German. Hilfskommanden der Schutzmannschaften) and the Cossack hundreds, who, together with the units of the Wehrmacht, were used for horse reconnaissance in hard-to-reach areas (Bolyanovsky A. Ukrainski viysky formvaniya in the Niromchini military forces. S. 97).

    Yes, and change, in fact, is not necessary. The Germans also put their paw to Ukraine today.

      But, no way ... well the good Nazis were touchingly caring for the sprouting sprouts of ukrodemocracy ... muzzled by evil males. And now they’ve made a paw out of habit - they have a habit of walking to Ukraine with a torch of freedom in their hands .... but at the same time they are interested in eggs, bacon and milk .... :))))

    Ignorance of history leads in such results as Maidan. Or among ukrointsy masochism in the blood, the worse it’s so funnier ...

    Eh, all this would be funny, if it were not so sad. Slowly the Germans began to rewrite history. Look, one of their movies "Our mothers, our fathers" is worth something. In his interpretation, Russian soldiers are entirely murderers and rapists, and "the Fuehrer's children" are people's defenders. Against this background, Merkel Granina listens with the air of Madonna ... Hypocrites.

      I watched this muck .... something like this - "the mice cried, injected, but continued to eat the cactus" ... in about the same way I read all sorts of rezunov, pigs and others like them. :))) Yes, you are right, the Germans also rewrite history, racing with the Anglo-Saxons and, moreover, satellites ... really - sad ... and disgusting ... One thing is good, even though we have this almost stopped, but our home-grown liberals turned out to be cooler than the Germans ...

        Only it didn’t stop, but calmed down under a firm hand. Practice shows how much nits do not push, but in the mud it will come out nevertheless. And you have to be mentally prepared to push it further. And at the same time, which is typical, punishers and traitors from among "their own" commit atrocities much more cruel than alien bastards ...

    Of course, I understand that Donetsk or Kharkiv is not Crimea, but are we really going to watch how the "Right Sector" attack aircraft and American mercenaries will "put things in order" there? They will beat all the nafig there.

    There is no alternative. If we go there now, all the more so - without a "sacred sacrifice", then they will unite and beat us nafig already. Not all Russians there are considered "liberators", they were brainwashed for 23 years. Sad as it may seem, they will have to wait until their own government "stifles them in an embrace." At the same time, it seems to me that you won't have to wait long. They will survive the summer, but closer to winter everything will begin and end. Hopefully for the benefit of the people.

      The southeast missed its "flash". While the Crimea, having oriented itself in time, realized that "delaying death is like" and quickly held a referendum, "leaving" after it to Russia, the southeast took the position "and eat a fish and sit on a chair." During this time, the junta has grown stronger. If Donbass, Odessa, Nikolaev, Kharkov began to act decisively in March, when the Kiev Nazis and the Bandera were sharing the European Union "cookies", this could still lead to a positive result. Moreover, the south-east 50-50 supported the junta, in contrast to the Crimea. Now the junta has organized itself, its plowmen somehow managed to come to an agreement with each other (before May 25 in any case). It is provided with enormous moral, informational, financial and military assistance from the entire West, at least from the official one. The Kiev junta sent western mercenaries reinforced by militants from the "right sector" to fight the popular unrest in the southeast. In which state does the government establish order with the help of bandits and "soldiers of fortune"?
      So the southeast will now be very difficult.

    Don't fucking sit in the SBU building in Lugansk! We need to take airports, block roads, communications, etc.! Take pseudo-Huber oligarchs hostage! And arm the population! We need our hundreds! Hundreds of Donbas! If weapons to hell, then at least a battalion !!! And you will see how everything will change at once - WHEN YOU ARE STRONG! In the course of the option so far only with the separation of Donetsk and Lugansk into one common region "Donetsk Republic"! The rest will not be able to! In Kharkiv they won't throw off Gepa, there won't be a shit! The main thing now is to create the basis for a future large republic, a base, with its own authorities! Later it will be easier to attach new regions to it !!!
