Shliakh, monthly («Шлях»; Path). A monthly journal of literature, the arts, and politics, established in Moscow in March 1917 by Mykyta Shapoval and O. Mytsiuk. In August 1917 the journal was transferred to Kyiv, where it appeared until 1919. The publisher and editor was F. Kolomyichenko. Shliakh continued the traditions of Shapoval’s earlier journal, Ukraïns’ka khata. Among its contributors were some of the most distinguished cultural figures of the time, such as Mykola Vorony, Oleksander Oles, Hrytsko Chuprynka, Yakiv Mamontov, Khrystia Alchevska, Olha Kobylianska, Pavlo Tychyna, Maksym Rylsky, and Mykyta Shapoval (pseud: Sribliansky). The journal also contained translations of Western European literature, a cultural chronicle, and reviews. A total of 25 issues appeared.
