  Trypillian culture exhibit at The Ukrainian Museum (10/10/93)
The Trypillian culture received its name from the village of Trypillia on the Dnipro River in Ukraine, where the first discovery of this ancient civilization was made 100 years ago.
The Trypillian culture traces its origin to regions of the Eastern Mediterranean and the Balkans, from where the earliest forms of agriculture and livestock breeding spread throughout Neolithic Europe.
Trypillians built their villages in a circle formation, enclosing a large central area which, during the early period of the culture, served as a herding pen for domesticated livestock.

Shlain describes that Trypillian attitudes were similar to contemporary communities: “in the emerging civilizations, a mother Goddess was the principal deity: in Sumer she was Inanna, in Egypt she was Isis, in Canaan her name was Asherah, in Syria she was Astarte, in Greece, Demeter, in Cyprus, Aphrodite.
Passek, M. Biliashevkiyi, O. Spytssyn and V. Horodtsov are convinced that the highly developed culture of the Trypillians “came from the south across the Aegean Sea and the Sea of Marmara from the Asian coast, or across the Mediterranean Sea from Finikia of Egypt, as the ornamented ceramics suggest some oriental influence” (Susloparov, 2004).
Ancestrally, the link between between the Trypillian civilization and today’s Ukraine is also evident in the uninterrupted process of landcare and farming of a common area for millennia.

 Neolithic - Facts, Information, and Encyclopedia Reference article
There are early Neolithic cultures in SE Anatolia, Syria and Iraq by 8000 BC, and food-producing societies first appear in southeast Europe by 7000 BC, and Central Europe by cal 5500 BC (of which the earliest cultural complexes include the Starčevo-Koros (Cris), Linearbandkeramic, and Vinča).
Early Neolithic farming is limited to a narrow range of crops (both wild and domestic) and the keeping of sheep and goats, but by about 7000 BC it included domestic cows, pigs, permanently or semi-permanently inhabited settlements and the use of pottery.
These stuctures (and their later Neolithic equivalents such as causewayed enclosures, burial mounds, and henges) required considerable time and labour to construct, which suggests that some influential individuals were able to organise and direct human labour.

By the 1569 Union of Lublin that formed the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth, a significant part of Ukrainian territory was moved from largely Ruthenized Lithuanian rule to the Polish administration, as it was transferred to the Polish Crown.
Under the cultural pressure of polonization much of the Ruthenian upper class converted to Catholicism (such transitions were beneficial for achieving political influence within the state), for example, King Michael of Poland, who reigned from 1669 to 1673, was of the Ruthenian Vishnevetsky Wiśniowiecki family.
The Ukrainian national idea lived on during the early-Soviet years and the Ukrainian culture and language even enjoyed a revival as the Ukrainization became a local implementation of the Soviet-wide Korenization ("indigenization") policy whose gains were sharply reversed by the early-1930s policy changes.

This principality proved to be strong enough to withstand the pressure both from the east and from the west, fending off the attempts of the western crusaders to subjugate it.
The post-war reconstruction made Ukraine a rather developed industrial and agricultural land; Ukrainian culture was allowed to develop within the boundaries set by the communist regime; on the other hand, any deviation from the official line was fraught with danger of prosecution and imprisonment.
