History

Northern Bukovina, together with the southern Bukovina (most of the Suceava county in Romania), was ceded to the Habsburg Monarchy in 1775, when a portion of the Ottoman Empire's Balkan possession, the Principality of Moldavia, was carved out and granted, under the provisions of the Treaty of Constantinople, to the Austrian Empire, as part of the Habsburg hereditary lands. Bukovina was at first a closed Austrian military district, and following the Josephine reforms, was administered as the largest circle within the Habsburg constituent kingdom of Galicia and Lodomeria. Following the 1848 Revolution, it became a separate Austrian duchy and crown land within the Empire. After the Compromise of 1867, when the Austrian Empire was reorganised into the Cisleithania (Austrian) and Transleithania (Hungarian), Bukovina was allotted to the Austrian portion of the Dual Monarchy of Austria-Hungary. At the disintegration of Austro-Hungary in 1918, General Congress of Bukovina, a local Romanians-dominated legislative body passed in Chernivtsi a decision of "an indissoluble union with the Kingdom of Romania", which was swiftly used by Romania to send in the troops and occupy the area.

On June 28, 1940, following the Ribbentrop-Molotov Pact and Soviet Ultimatum Romania ceded Bessarabia, northern Bukovina to the Soviet Union. Hertza region not included in the ultimatum was occupied by the Soviet Union at the same time. The Soviet take-over of Northern Bukovina was motivated as compensation of the belongings of Bessarabia to Romania from 1918 to 1940.

On August 2, 1940, out of some of the territories occupied on June 28, Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic was formed, the 15th Soviet republic.

Unlike the Bessarabian population that was somewhat accustomed to Russian rule as it was part of the Russian Empire before 1918, the Bukovinian population has never been expecting Russian annexation, and staged many protests, without realising that that could provoke serious Soviet reprisals. In the winter and spring of 1941, the Soviet troops (NKVD) opened fire on many groups of locals trying to cross the border into Romania (for more, see: Fântâna-Albă massacre). The NKVD (Narodnyi Komissariat Vnutrennikh Del )(Russian: НКВД, Народный комиссариат внутренних дел) or Peoples Commisariat for Internal Affairs was a government department which handled a number of the Soviet Unions affairs of state. ... ...


Between September 17 and November 17, 1940, by a mutual agreement between USSR and Germany, 43,641 "ethnic Germans" from the Chernivtsi region were moved to Germany. As the total ethnic German population was however only 34,500, and as even of these, some 3,500 did not go to Germany, the obvious numerical discrepancy is accounted for by the inclusion of Romanians, Ukrainians and Poles within the numbers that the local German organisers had classed among the ethnic "Germans". Many of these were probably partners in ethnically-mixed marriages in which one partner or parent was truly an ethnic German and the other was not. Upon their arrival the Nazi government sent over half of those surplus to the correct number of ethnic Germans to concentration camps. Only some were freed after the protests of the Romanian government.

Throughout 1940-1941 several tens of thousands of Bukovinians were deported to Siberia and Kazakhstan, of which some 13,000 alone on June 13, 1941; without regard for their ethnicity. Under the Romanian occupation during the war, the Jewish community of the area was destroyed by the deportations to the death camps. In 1944, when the Soviet troops returned to Bukovina, many inhabitants fled to Romania, with the result that the region was seriously depopulated. In demographic terms, these war-time factors changed in the region's ethnic composition. In 1940, there was roughly a ration of 6:4:2:1:1 Ukrainians:Romanians:Jews:Germans:Poles. Today the number of Jews, Germans and Poles is statistically insignificant, while the number of Romanians has decreased substantially, and many are themselves immigrants (or their descendants) who arrived from eastern Ukraine and Russia itself. Even today, many ethnic Romanians/Moldavians remain officially registered as Russian or Ukrainian, a legacy of the ethnic classification practices of the former USSR.

There was always a significant Ukrainian minority in Bukovina overall, mostly settled in the northern portion of Bukovina where they were locally in a relative majority. In 1775, Ukrainians (Ruthenians) and Poles in Bukovina (including the south) taken together numbered some 10,000 (out of a total populace of 75,000). In 1918, as a result of migration from Galicia, there were approximately 200,000 Ukrainians alone, out of a total of 730,000 (again, including the southern Bukovina, where there were fewer Ukrainians). 1775 was a common year starting on Sunday (see link for calendar). ...

The ethnic Ukrainians in the south-western mountain area of the Chernivtsi region belong to the Hutsul ethnic group, and inhabit an area in the Carpathian Mountains from the Bukovinian town of Putila, extending across the Ceremus River in southern Pocutia (the southern part of the Ivano-Frankivsk Oblast) until the northern Maramureş town of Bychkiv (Zakarpattya (Transcarpathian) region).

In 1940, after the flight of the Romanian intellectuals, when the region was occupied by the Soviet Union, the total population of Chernivtsi Oblast was around 805.000, out of which 47.5% were Ukrainians in 1940 and 28.3% were Romanians. Germans, Jews, Poles, Hungarians and Russians (Lipovans) [1]) comprised the rest.

In the immediate aftermath of the Soviet takeover (1940) and during the Second World War, major demographic changes occurred. Most Poles were deported by the Soviet authorities, while most Germans returned to Germany. Under the Romanian occupation during the war, the Jewish community of the area was destroyed by the deportations to the death camps. The Soviet government deported or killed about 41.000 Romanians while at the same time, further encouraging an influx of Ukrainians from the Ukrainian SSR.

According to the Ukrainian Census (2001) data [2], the Ukrainians represent about 75% (689.1 thousand) of the population of the region. The census also identified a fall in the Romanian and Moldovan populations to 12.5% (114.6 thousand) and 7.3% (67.2 thousand), respectively. The artificial division between Moldovans and Romanians is an old Soviet-era practice and has been condemned as such by Romanian organizations in Ukraine. Russians are the next largest ethnic group with 4.1%, while Poles, Belarusians, and Jews comprise the rest. The languages of the population closely reflect the ethnic composition with over 90% within each of the major ethnic groups declaring their national language as the mother tongue (Ukrainian, Romanian, and Russian, respectively).

The appearance of Romanians and Moldovans in the census as two separate ethnic groups has been criticized by the Romanian Community of Ukraine - Interregional Union which complain that this old Soviet-era practice results in the Romanian population being undercounted. However, the census respondents were free to claim their ethnicity as they wished with no predetermined set of choices, not to respond to any particular census question or not answer any questions at all and no serious allegation of the counting fraud were ever brought up.
