On November 22, 1917 the Ukrainian government, known as Central Rada, adopted the Third Universal solemnly declaring the establishment of the Ukrainian National Republic. In response, the Bolsheviks, who came to power in Russia through a coup d’état on November 7th, issued an ultimatum, which made various demands on the Ukrainian government, but in reality the Bolsheviks were already at war with the Ukrainian government.
