The Directory: Who, Why, How?

In the summer of 1918 the opponents of Hetman Pavlo Skoropadsky regime who had assembled in Ukrainian National Union (UNUnion) became politically radicalized. Opposition activists embarked on plotting an armed rebellion. The Directory (Directorate) — the rebellion executive body — was formed late night on November 13, 1918.
