Volhynia was the only occassion I know of where the Poles actually asked the Wehrmacht for assistance.

After the war, the Polish communist regime took its revenge against the Ruthenians in Bieszczady.

However, there are other examples. After WWI Poles and Ukrainians fought a bitter street-by-street fight for control of Lwow, with the Poles winning. Despite that battle, when the Poles sent a division to oppose Trotsky's Red Army, local Ukrainians supplied another two divisions of volunteers to support them. When I brought this example up to some Ukrainians in Lviv a couple of years ago, they said, "We all recognize who the real enemy is."

Bet they said the same to the Germans in 1941. And the same to the Russians again in 1944. Solzhenitzyn mentioned that there was one thing in common in Stalin’s and Nazi camps. You were guarded by the Ukrainians.

It is really stunning how they are always capable to assemble in a group of a million people to violently deny something and then in a short period of time again denouncing the very same thing and praising what they were against the first time. And if you ask them they say they ALWAYS held the same position on the subject and they don’t even know anyone who didn’t.

That is one extremist opportunism.
