In 1920, Poland waged war against what was then known as Soviet Russia (later, the USSR), and annexed vast areas of territory that is today Ukraine and Belarus. Poland kept these territories until the end of World War II, when the Allies reconfigured eastern Europe. You can read about the war here:

Here are references to maps that show what Poland looked like during this period:
