Identification of firearms used by Ukrainian Insurgent Army, based on photos from Yavoriv Archive.

Yavoriv Archive the best preserved archive of photos of Ukrainian Insurgent Army. It includes 216 film negatives that show everyday life of UPA soldiers of a unit that was operating in Carpathian Mountains in Western Ukraine. Vasyl Humenyuk talented photographer was honored to develop and popularize this unusual treasure from the past. Pictures of Ukrainian Insurgent Army soldiers are very rare and difficult to find, because the Army operated in deep underground under soviet occupation, and secrecy was a necessity to protect families of the freedom fighters.

Greywolves Company reenactment unit of Ukrainain Insurgent Army, based in Chicago decided to analyze the pictures of the Archive to find out exactly what types of weapons was used by Ukrainian Insurgents in the period between 1943 and 1954. Result of our work you can find below. It can be useful for historians, WW2 reenactors and others interested in the subject.
