Abstract


The purpose of the research is to analyze the role of the economic and technocratic elite in the conditions of the revolutionary transformation of the Ukrainian society (March 1917 – April 1918).

Methods: inductive and deductive; chronological.

Main results. Given the immaturity of the Ukrainian elite, it should be noted that the economic and technocratic elite at the initial stage of the national liberation struggle was hardly represented in the Central Rada. Those who had economic education – did not have experience in state-building, which complicated the decision of urgent issues of the Ukrainian society. Particularly acute inability of the technocratic elite to regulate important aspects of the functioning of the state was felt in the regions. The inadequate interest of the elite, the deformation of the Ukrainian society, the populist policy of the Central Rada, and its inability to solve urgent issues in the conditions of the revolution pushed away from it the representatives of the economic and technocratic elite and determined the future fate of the Ukrainian revolution.

Scientific novelty. The author attempted to determine the main ways of recruiting an economically-technocratic elite, the activities of the economics and technocratic elite in the conditions of revolutionary transformations in March 1917 – April 1918, characterizes the attitude of the economically-technocratic elite to revolutionary events and the influence of the October Revolution on the ideological orientations of this stratum.

The practical significance of the work is the possibility of using it while teaching the course "History of Ukraine", studies of local lore.

Type of article: theoretical.
