Nikolai Arkas was a famous Ukrainian historian and composer. His father was Greek and his mother had Cossack roots. Perhaps thanks to this, and the upbringing of his mother, Nikolai sincerely loved Ukraine and had a deep patriotism. He was a man who loved Ukraine very much and hated those who defiled it. In his book "History of Ukraine-Russia" he portrayed the history of Slavic tribes in our country. The book analyzes life and culture. The book is about the history of the Kiev state, about the princes. The next stage in our history Arkas considered - the Lithuanian-Polish period. It is about Polish rulers and our hetmans. It is at this stage that the beginning of the Cossack state falls. Then the author tells about the next period is Polish-Moscow. It tells about the leadership of the hetmans before the destruction of the Zaporozhian Sich. The last period that is described in the book is Russian-Austrian.
