A native of the village of Pavlovskaya . He graduated from the law faculty of Moscow University . He worked as secretary of the Novorossiysk City Council and after 2-3 years applied for the post of local mayor . However, the authorities were wary of him, for he was considered a man of “leftist convictions” and therefore had no possibility of advancement in social activity. In 1900, Bych transferred to private service in the Eastern Transport Society on the Volga and the Caspian Sea, where he was soon appointed director of the Baku branch. Over the years, he gained popularity and was elected the vowel of the Baku City Council , and in 1912 he was elected to the post of mayor of Baku . At this post, he was able to reconcile the three main national population groups: Turks , Armenians and Russians , thanks to which the issue of supplying the city with fresh water was resolved. He was also able to find funds for the construction of the Baku- Shollar water supply system, designed by the English engineer Lindley . By 1917, the city, always suffering from a lack of drinking water, began to be supplied with it in abundance from a distance of 150 km.
In 1917 , after the February Revolution, Bych was appointed by the Provisional Government to the post of supply chief of the Caucasian Army, for which he had to relinquish all other posts. After the collapse of the front and desertion of troops, he returned to the Kuban , where he was elected Regional Council to the post of chairman of the Kuban government . Together with government agencies, he participated in the First Kuban campaign , then returned to Ekaterinodar , making efforts to coordinate the interests of the Kuban region with the views and requirements of the Volunteer Army . After the election of General A.P. Filimonov to the post of Kuban chieftain, which Bych himself claimed, he renounced the duties of the prime minister, believing it meaningless to occupy such a high and important post without sufficient support from the deputies of the Rada , and remained an ordinary member of the Legislative Rada . In early 1919, the Council appointed him head of the delegation to the Paris Peace Conference . Having met representatives of the Caucasian highlanders in Paris , the delegation discussed and signed a draft friendship treaty with them, which was announced at a meeting of the Rada on September 10, 1919 and ended tragically for the priest Kulabukhov who brought him from Paris .
Due to disagreements with Denikin and later due to the fall of the Kuban People’s Republic, Bych remained in exile. Since 1922, Bych in Czechoslovakia taught Municipal Law to students of the Ukrainian Agricultural Academy, and after that was its rector. He died there, in Czechoslovakia, at the age of 75 in 1945 .
