A Ukrainian political movement dedicated to the establishment of an independent Ukrainian state. The OUN arose from the merger of the Ukrainian Military Organization (UVO) and several nationalist student associations. Two conferences of Ukrainian Nationalists--one in Nov. 1927 and the other in April 1928--paved the way for the founding congress, which was held in Vienna in 1929. Blaming the socialist and liberal camps for the failure of the Ukrainian Revolutions of 1917-20, the OUN stressed the importance of a strong political elite, national solidarity, and reliance on 'our own forces'. The OUN accepted violence as a political tool, much of it directed against the Polish regime. The Second Grand Assembly of the OUN was held in Rome in 1939. Following the German invasion of Russia in 1941 the OUN(B) proclaimed Ukrainian independence in Lviv on 30 June 1941. The Nazi government did not cooperate with the OUN and eventually imprisoned and killed many of their members. Resistance to German rule began in 1942 and eventually the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA) absorbed many of their members. However much of the OUN's ideology did not appeal to former Soviet citizens and a Third Extraordinary Grand Assembly was held in August 1943 in which both fascist nationalist and Russian Bolshevik communism were condemned in favor of a 'system of free peoples and independent states'. In Feb. 1946 external units of the OUN (ZCh OUN) were formed in Munich, but organizational strife and rivalry continued between the various factions of the OUN as each one tried to dominate émigré life)
