United States of Poland


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_of_Poland

United States of Poland (Polish: Stany Zjednoczone Polski) was an unrealized political concept of reborn Poland, created by Ignacy Jan Paderewski (1860–1941). It was first presented in Paderewski Memorial, given to US President Woodrow Wilson on 11 January 1917.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ignacy_Jan_Paderewski

Paderewski's idea postulated rebuilding a Polish state as federation, in which constitution and law would guarantee equality to citizens, ethnic and religious groups. Territory would engulf most of pre-partitioned territory. Taking into account of that time population, the country would have 54 million citizens. On its head would be a President with a title of the King of Poland, Lithuania, Polesia and Halych.[1]

United States of Poland were to be a number of autonomous states including:

Kingdom of Poland (Królestwo Polski)
Kingdom of Lithuania (Królestwo Litwy)
Kingdom of Polesia (Królestwo Polesia)
Kingdom of Galitia-Podole (Królestwo Halicji)
Kingdom of Volhynia (Królestwo Wołynia)

Later the concept of Galitia-Podole was supplanted by Kingdom of Halych (Królestwo Halicji), in separate memorial there was also postulate of incorporating a Eastern Prussia into it.[1]

Why were Galicia and Volhynia separate states in this proposal?

Also, I would certainly approve of this proposal if Galicia and Volhynia were united and if all of the constituent parts of this union agreed to be in this union. Of course, my own preference would have been for all of Ukraine to be in union with Poland since that would negate Poland's demographic dominance of such a union.
