Bat’kivshchyna («Батьківщина»; Fatherland). Popular political and economic newspaper for peasants, founded in Lviv on the initiative and with the support of Yuliian Romanchuk. It was published from 1879 to 1896. Although Bat’kivshchyna adopted a moderate position on political issues, it became the object of interparty rivalry (from 1888 to 1889 it was edited by the Ukrainian Radical party leader Mykhailo Pavlyk).
