ABSTRACT
Regular interaction between Mennonites and Ukrainians began in the 1860s and by the end of the nineteenth century it reached an impressive level. However, Mennonite‐Ukrainian relations never developed into the strong relationship which could have benefited both communities. Cultural and economic differences impeded this from the start. The author argues that Mennonite‐Ukrainian interaction occurred in the late eighteenth century because they lacked a conscious desire to understand each other. The interaction was sporadic and superficial. Only after the Russian Revolution and the disastrous civil war did a positive interaction begin to develop.
