Mykola Kapustianskyi (1.II.1879 - 19.II.1969) is a prominent Ukrainian military and political figure, general of the Ukrainian People's Army. He participated in the Russo-Japanese War of 1904-1905. During World War I, he was a Colonel in the General Staff of the Russian Army and a Chief of division headquarters. In August 1919, during the joint campaign of the Army of the Ukrainian People's Republic and the Ukrainian Galician Army to Kiev and Odessa, Mykola headed the operational units of the combined armies. After the end of the Liberation acts of 1917-1921, Kapustianskyi was interned at the Polish camp Lantsut. He later lived in Poland, from 1923 in Paris. He took an active part in the life of the Ukrainian community in France, where in 1932 he organized a public and cultural organization - the Ukrainian People's Union (later - the National) Union. Kapustyanskiy was one of the founders and leading members of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists. In the postwar period, he lived in Germany.
