In 1569 the Ukrainians were ruled by the Rech Pospolite, a state created in 1569 by unification of the Polish Kingdom and the Great Lithuanian Principality. The Polish nobility were cruel leaders
and severely oppressed the Ukrainian people. The Cossack leader Bogdan Hmelnitsky led a revolt against the Polish from 1648-1653, gaining independence from Poland. Bohdan Khmelnitsky led Ukraine's incorporation into the
Russian Empire in 1654.

Next to this plaque is the Bogdana Hmelnits-kavo Monument which was built in August of 2002.
