Vyacheslav Kazymyrovych Lypynsky (April 5, 1882 — June 14, 1931) was a Ukrainian historian, social and political activist, an ideologue of Ukrainian conservatism. He was also the founder of the Ukrainian Democratic–Agrarian Party. Under the government of Hetmanate, he served as the Ukrainian ambassador to Austria. Lypynsky was born in Zaturtsi into a family of Polish noble origins. He studied philosophy, agronomy and history at Jagiellonian University in Krakow. Lypynsky developed a particular interest in military matters and in the study of the ways in which, historically, the nobility shaped Ukrainian statehood, ultimately calling on the nobility within Ukraine to fight for that nation's rebirth. During the First World War he served as an officer in the Russian army, and afterward became involved in the struggle for Ukrainian independence, serving as the Ukrainian government's ambassador to Austria under the government of the Ukrainian Hetmanate and its successor, the Directorate of Ukraine. He then lived abroad and became head of the Ukrainian Agrarian Statist Party as well as a leading monarchist, supporting the Ukrainian Hetman Pavlo Skoropadskyi. A conservative monarchist, Lypynsky was critical of the populism and socialism of the leadership of the Ukrainian Central Rada and Directorate governments with their emphasis on the workers and intelligentsia as a source of support. Instead, Lypynsky proposed that the focus of the struggle of independence should be built around the peasantry, the bourgeois, and the elite. Accordingly, he felt that a primary focus in the struggle for Ukrainian independence should be the conversion of the Russified or Polonized Ukrainian elite or nobility to the cause of Ukrainian statehood. Lypynsky wrote that Ukrainian statehood depended on the loyalty of the Ukrainian population towards the Ukrainian state regardless of ethnic origins or social status. A Ukrainian monarch, such as a Hetman, was seen by Lypynsky as essential in cementing the loyalties of the members of various social classes and ethnicities. Although opposed to democracy, Lypynsky's national and class inclusiveness was also opposed to the totalitarian[citation needed] ideology of his rival Dmytro Dontsov. Manor Lipinski remarkable, first of all, that it is the only museum in Ukraine, which is illuminated by the life and public activity of historians and political scientists Vyacheslav Lipinski. In this house he spent his childhood and youth. The estate was built in 1871, and around the house there was a magnificent park. Over time, natural phenomena and social changes have imposed their marks and significantly influenced the appearance of the house and the surrounding area. 11 years after the construction of the manor distinguished historian and social activist Vyacheslav Lipinski was born here. In 2011 there was the grand opening of the estate within which the exposition dedicated to the life and activity of V. Lipinsky. Condition: Good.
