In 1918‑9 defended Jewish population hiding them in the basements of Zhytomyr cathedral, during numerous attacks of Ukrainian troops. During Polish–Russian war of 1920, during Kiev expedition of Polish Army under Joseph Piłsudski defended Jews from pogrom — in danger of being accused of mudering Polish soldiers. After withdrawal of Polish troops stayed behind in his parish, in Zhytomyr, soon under Russian control. For the first time arrested in 1922. Accused of hiding valuables. Released. On 04.11.1923 arrested again, together with Fr John Kotwicki and Fr Anthony Traczyński among others, and accused of membership of „White Eagle”, clandestine Polish resistance organization, and espionage for Poland. Held captive in Zhytomyr. Tortured. Agreed to become Russian secret police OGPU informer under condition, that 19 of his parishioners are released. On 25.12.1923 released himself. Did not fulfill his part of the „bargain” and on 09.05.1924 arrested again. Jailed in Zhytomyr and Kharkiv. Again tortured and blackmailed. Broke down, admitted to „espionage” and wrote a letter to the Pope rejecting accusations that Catholics were persecuted in Russia, subsequently published. On 10.11.1924 released. On 04.03.1925 on the banks of the river in Zhytomyr committed suicide — doused himself with kerosene and set alight. Perished few hours later in hospital saying that he „committed a sin against humanity and had to punish himself”.

Polish-Russian war of 1919—20: War for independence of Poland and its borders. Poland regained independence in 1918 but had to fight for its borders with former imperial powers, in particular Russia. Russia planned to incite Bolshevik–like revolutions in the Western Europe and thus invaded Poland. Russian invaders were defeated in 08.1920 in a battle called Warsaw battle („Vistula river miracle”, one of the 10 most important battles in history, according to some historians). Thanks to this victory Poland recaptured part of the lands lost during partitions of Poland in XVIII century, and Europe was saved from the genocidal Communism.
