Governing Council of the Hetman Office

Governing Council of the Hetman Office (Ukrainian: Правління гетьманського уряду) was a provisional form of the Collegium of Little Russia in the Hetmanate and Sloboda Ukraine that was established by Anna of Russia in 1734.

After the death of Hetman Danylo Apostol in 1734, the Russian government did not allow to conduct elections of the Hetman of Zaporizhian Host. Instead, the post was replaced by an appointed council that consisted of three Russian officials and three officials of Cossack seniors (starshyna).
