Ukrainian People’s Republic (1917-1921) was an independent country that existed between 1917 and 1921. Independence was even recognized by Bolshevik Russia in February 1918. Later as usual in 1918 Russia chose to withdraw its recognition of independent Ukraine. /4

The map shows how the Kuban used to be considered Ukrainian. It was largely settled by Cossacks after Catherine destroyed the Sich. The Cossacks were then genocided by the Bolsheviks — their population was reduced by about 50% – with a focus on destroying their elite. And Russian from elsewhere were resettled into Cossack lands to destroy their way of life, which relied on open land and some free movement. And that, I argue is the typical process of how people “become Russian.”

Ukrainian/Cossack identity began rising from the ashes later during the Soviet period. The Soviets resorted to typical Russian tactics for destroying it, including organizing school clubs so that people who needed to be deported would self-identify. It’s covered in this documentary:
