Abstract:The article deals with the peculiarities of ideological and propaganda substantiation of the process of Eastern Galicia, Northern Bukovina, Zakarpattia by the Russian Empire at the initial stage of the First World War on the basis of source materials of Ukrainian governorates of South-West Kray (Kyiv, Volyn and Podillia). The main thematic areas of press publications, the content and specificity of appeals and brochures’ informative filling are noted. It is examined that the imperial authorities began to actively ideological myths propaganda from the first days of the war about the process of the “collecting Rus’ lands” (“zbyrannia zemel ruskykh”*) and that the Galician population is a fraternal people who needs a long-awaited “liberation”. The mass media used various techniques and mechanisms of information influence on the formation of public consciousness in order to overpersuade the society in the truthfulness of the aforementioned assertions and for the formation of a positive attitude towards the occupation of Western Ukrainian lands. The Orthodox clergy and the church mass media, which supported the official policy of the government and widely propagated the idea of the liberation of Eastern Galicia, Northern Bukovina and Zakarpattia population from Roman, Catholic oppression, played an important role in theideological course of the imperial authorities.

Abstract:Education system of the USSR gave the great opportunities for formation of a new type of person — Homo Sovieticus. So, the teacher was supposed to be an ideal of communist morality. The Communist Party has always followed the personal lives of teachers. Teacher’s appearance has always been clearly regulated. Clothing, hairstyle, make-up was canonically restrained. Leisure was focused on self-education or socially useful activity. The purpose of this publication is an illustration of Soviet teacher`s appearance (clothes, hairstyle, make-up, accessories) and leisure activities. So, the research is based on archival materials, memoirs and previous studies. Having analysed the memoirs and previous studies, the author makes the following conclusions. In the USSR, the appearance of the teacher was not assessed in terms of fashion or style, but in terms of purity, modesty and precision. In the first postwar years there was a big shortage of clothing. Male teachers continued to wear military uniforms. Women dressed simple dresses, mostly dark colours. Since the 1960s, when the fashion began to penetrate the USSR, teachers also followed the trends. It was possible to make a fashionable hairstyle, to wear fashionable clothes. Widespread form of leisure was the watching movies in the cinema. Widespread were also active holidays, sports, walks in parks, reading books and newspapers. Such aspects of the life of Soviet teachers as appearance and leisure are not studied enough. At the same time, this topic is promising. Scientific research can be supplemented with a large number of archival materials and photos. Besides, during the further study of this topic it should be used the method of oral history.

Abstract:The article focuses on the beginning of the process of formation of museum collections relevant to the military past of the Dnieper Ukraine in the 19th — first decade of the 20th century. It is determined, in the research scope, that the process of creating museum exhibits, which consisted of monuments of military historical heritage, was influenced by the following: the development of archaeological research, which was stimulated by the domination of classicism, which induced interest in the ancient past, the imperial power ideologizing the historical process, the Ukrainian nobility (descendants of the Cossacks elders) preserving historical memory of the victorious past of their people, and so on. It is found, that during the 19th century, museumification of the 19th and early 20th centuries military heritage had several trends: the creation of “propaganda” exposition, which would remind of the key, from the tsarist regime point of view, imperial army victories, foster respect for the imperial family and the royal power institution self, commemorate imperial myths, the formation of the Cossacks antiquities collections, initiated by Ukrainian intellectuals and scholars; expositions formed by the military according to purely professional interest. During the 19th and early 20th centuries, a number of museums, which had monuments of military history as a part of their collections, were founded. Some of the aforementioned museums are the following: the Museum of Ukrainian Antiquities in Chernihiv, the Museum of Heroic Defense and the Liberation of the City of Sevastopol, the Museum of Poltava Battle, etc. Museumification of the military heritage has stimulated the development of various areas of special military-historical research.

Among the local record-keeping, the documents of the Mariupol Greek Court (was created in accordance with the charter of 1779) occupy a significant place due to the wealth of statistical information.
