Bogdan Khmelnitskiy (Ukrainian: Богдан Хмельницький) was a soldier and military commander, originally from the Orthodox part of Poland-Lithuania. He organized the consolidation of Slavic peoples in present-day Ukraine and Belarus in an uprising against the Ottoman Turks. Securing freedom, his state became part of Russia. He is, in retrospect, regarded as one of the greatest Ukrainians.
