Ukrainian People's Republican party
Ukrainian People's Republican party (Українська народно-республіканська партія; Ukrainska narodno-respublikanska partiia, or УНРП; UNRP). A political party founded in Ukraine toward the end of 1918. The UNRP followed a conservative line on agrarian and other matters, supported the Entente, and opposed socialism. Its leading members included Yevhen Arkhypenko, Pylyp Pylypchuk, and Oleksander Kovalevsky. In April 1919 the UNRP played a key role in Volodymyr Oskilko’s failed coup in Rivne.
