Vohni [«Вогні»; Fires]. A co-operative publishing house established in Lviv in 1929 to publish works and manuals by writers belonging to the Plast Ukrainian Youth Association (eg, Bohdan Kravtsiv, Arsen Richynsky, Yevhen Yulii Pelensky, I. Manastyrsky). After Plast was banned by the Polish authorities in 1930, Vohni continued to propagate the organization’s ideology through the journal Vohni (1931–9), edited by Pelensky, Jaroslav Rudnyckyj, Vasyl Karkhut, and Yaroslav Hladky. Vohni also published the monthly magazine Na slidi.
