Ivan Bogun

Bogun, Ivan

 

Died February 1664. Ukrainian political figure. Vinnitsa and Bratslav military commander. Close associate of Bogdan Khmel’nitskii in the war of liberation of the Ukrainian people, 1648–54.

From 1651 to 1653, Bogun defeated large Polish armed forces near Vinnitsa, Monastyrishche, and Zhvanets. In the summer of 1651 he was elected commanding hetmán near Berestechko. Between 1654 and 1657 he acted successfully against the Poles near Bratslav, Uman’, and other places and fought against the Tatars, who had been pillaging the Ukraine. After KhmeFnitskii’s death, Bogun stirred up an uprising against the traitorous hetman I. Vygovskii, defeating him in the autumn of 1659. He was arrested by the Polish gentry government on Feb. 17, 1664, and shot shortly thereafter. In 1918 one of the regiments of the N. A. Shchors Division was named after him.
