(also Kniga oborony; in English, Book of the Defense), a tract against the Brest Union of 1596. It was written by the Ukrainian writer Zakharii Kopystenskii in 1621–22 in Kiev. Kopystenskii sharply criticized the predatory policies of Poland and the Vatican in the Ukraine and Byelorussia and emphasized the historical ties between the Russian, Ukrainian, and Byelorussian peoples.
