In 1914, the Austro-Hungarian Empire stretched as far as Ukraine, occupying the Ukrainian provinces of Bukovyna, Carpatho-Ukraine and Halychyna. At the outbreak of World War One Ukraine presented Austria with a ready-made army of volunteers. The new Ukrainian Legion asked only that they be formed solely of Ukrainians and that they be allowed to fight the Russians!
