The principles of the state were structured during the war in Ukraine and therefore they consist not only of love for the Kingdom of Fronterib, but also for the country where it is located.

He is a symbol of a good leader, military leader and a real son of his country.
History of the territory
From ancient times to 1795
At the end of the 12th century, the region where the village is located belonged to the Dubrovytsia principality and the possessions of the Chortory princes, located on the border between the Volyn and Turov-Pinsk principalities. For some time it was under the rule of the Pinsk princes, and in the 1220s it was recaptured by Danylo Halytsky from Prince Rostyslav of Pinsk. The border area often suffered from wars and invasions waged by princes and were common in those days. Disputes were even resolved at the highest level. Thus, on April 6, 1537, in Krakow, King Sigismund of Poland approved the final demarcation of lands between the possessions of the Pinsk Castle of Queen Bona and the possessions of Prince Fyodor Chortory. One of the four commissioners appointed (two on each side) was "Mr. Bohdan Hrynkovych, the governor of the lake." There is no more information about him and his attitude to the village of Ozero is currently impossible to clarify. The delimitation of possessions went from the middle of the Styr River through the upper reaches of the Stubla River, Lake Luko and further through the Morochne marshes behind Dubrovytsia in the direction of Pinsk. South of this border, the then existing villages of Radizhevo, Hinochi and Lipne belonged to the possessions of the Chortory princes. The village of Ozero (The territory where the Fronterib is located) is not on this list. It may have been attributed to the possessions of Pinsk Castle. The exact time of the founding of the village is unknown. The first written mention of him is given in the tax register of the heir JK Pac for 1629, according to which the village of Ozera was paid a tax for 46 smokes. The population was about 300 people. It was a relatively large settlement, with only Volodymyrets (220), Gorodets (142) and Tseptsevychi (94 smokes) being the largest. At the beginning of the XVII century. in 1601 the whole Volodymyrechchyna (36 villages) probably together with the village of Ozero was bought by the Minsk voivode JK Pac for 400 thousand Polish zlotys from the princes of Chortory. Accordingly, the village could have been founded much earlier.
The early founding of the village is evidenced by the fact that in the western part of the lake there is a bulk island called "Moore" with an area of about 0.5 hectares, which has the remains of the foundation of an ancient brick building, possibly a small castle. According to the testimony of the old-timer of the village Slychka SI (born in 1937) in the 1940s on the Mura were the remains of part of the basement of the building measuring 4 × 4 m with brick walls and old large ash trees grew. There was even a rare chestnut for this area. Subsequently, the peasants dismantled the bricks and sawed the trees for their own needs.  The villagers have no information about Moore, except that, according to legend, the building once housed a prison. No materials about him were found in Polish sources. Probably, the origin of the island is connected with the times of princes Dubrovytsky-Holshansky (XII-XIII centuries), whose capital was in Dubrovytsia, 30 km from the village. From the XII century. the territory to which the village belonged belonged alternately to the Dubrovytsia principality, then to the Volyn principality, and after its unification in 1199 with the Halych one to the Halych-Volyn principality. In 1340, the Galicia-Volyn principality was conquered by Lithuania, and after 1569 - by Poland, which, unlike Lithuania, began to forcibly spread Catholicism, which provoked opposition from the local population. Probably, the villagers together with the neighbors of the village. Kidry took part in the liberation war of 1648-54 under the leadership of B. Khmelnytsky. Old Ukrainian has long been the business language of the region as well as of the whole region.
All judicial and administrative documents were kept in this language until the beginning of the XVII century, then the records were transferred to the Polish language. This is evidenced by the materials of the Lutsk Castle, Record and Current Books of the XV-XVII centuries.
