Тепер ми самим очевидним способом маємо боротьбу самих народів – великоруського й українського.

Один наступає, другий борониться.

Історія сих двох «братніх народів» вступила в стадію, про котру оповідає біблійна історія перших братів:

І спитав Бог: Каїне, де твій брат Авель?

(Михайло Грушевський, «Очищення вогнем»,1918)
