In 1918 while in Horadnia, he began serving the Government of the Belarusian Democratic Republic as an officer and later as a civilian administrator. Since he was from the Horadnia region, Jakubiecki was elected chairman of the Belarusian Peasant Council of the Horadnia region in 1918.
In 1919 he became a member of the Belarusian Military Commission, working closely with Aleś Harun; and in 1920 he took part in the Słucak Front.
After World War I, Jakubiecki stayed in Poland but was arrested by the Poles in 1921 and imprisoned. In 1922 he was expelled from Poland and sent directly to Lithuania. He emigrated from Lithuania to Latvia and taught in numerous Belarusian schools there. Jakubiecki was still active in Belarusian administration during World War II but vanished after the war.
