These are materials about Hetman Pavlo Skoropadskyi and his family, individual figures of the Hetmanate, the Hetman Liberation Fund, Hetmanites' activity in emigration in Europe, America and Canada, organizational structure, functions and main directions of the Hetman movement. Among the documents there are originals and copies of orders, regulations, resolutions of meetings and talks, letters, questionnaires, statements, explanatory notes, official publications of foreign countries and printed editions of Ukrainian emigration parties and groups, as well as images of seals, symbols, the Hetman movement leaders' authentic signatures, photos etc.
These documents were collected in their time by the Soviet security services in order to monitor the activity of the Hetman movement in emigration and of Hetman Pavlo Skoropadskyi himself, to discredit and terminate the functioning of Ukrainian emigrant organizations.
