Wastren Ukraine is no a admeenistrative category athin Ukraine. It is defined mainly in the context o European history pertainin tae the 20t century wars an the ensuin period o annexations. The current oblast admeenistration borders are amaist perfectly aligned wi the admeenistrative diveesions o the Seicont Pols Republic frae afore the 1939 invasion o Poland bi the Soviet Union. At the onset o Warld War II the region wis incorporatit intae the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic (УРСР),[1][2][3][4] follaein mock elections which manufactured public consent for the transfer o laund frae occupee'd Poland tae the Soviet Union as o 22 October 1939.[5] Its historical backgrund maks Wastren Ukraine uniquely different frae the rest o the kintra, an contributes tae its distinctive character o the day.[6]
