Kopyczynce is about 20 kms west of Husiatyn where my father's family is from.
Husiatyn straddled the border between Poland and the Soviet Union across the river Zbrucz.
My father described the Polish Army housing soldiers in a 2 story complex in Husiatyn.
So it is quit likely that Robert Czernkowski's father would have had contact with the Polish soldiers in Husiatyn.
Also Koyczynce and Husiatyn are on the same railway line used for deportations.
I have just spoken with my father about the military unit in Husiatyn. When Germany invaded all but 5 of the soldiers remained, the rest having been transferred west. When Russia invaded the army barracks was turned into a POW camp. Somehow the Polish POW's managed to get hold of a Polish flag and one night took down the soviet flag and hoisted up the Polish flag on top of the 2 story building.
