Yushchenko's other efforts in the realm of memory politics--the glorification of the battle of Konotop in 1659 as a great victory of Ukrainians over Russians, the commemoration of the Baturin tragedy of 1708 (the destruction of the Cossack Hetmanate capital, Baturin, and persecution of the civilian population by the troops of Peter the Great), the battle of Poltava in 1709 (the defeat of Charles XII and loss of the autonomy of Ukrainian lands), the Kruty tragedy of 1918 (the heroic sacrifice of Kyivan students in the fight against Bolsheviks from Moscow)--all these efforts were regarded by his opponents as nationalist propaganda (in Ukraine) and as policies aimed at driving a wedge between brotherly peoples (in Russia).
