Let me just jump in and say that I think Martin's summary of Rusyns
in (Czecho-)Slovakia was superb.
Before he responds to your question, let me throw out there this
very interesting article from the website of the Orthodox parish in
It pretty clearly demonstrates that Rusyns were one of the
significant ethnic groups who lived in Michalovce and many of the
surrounding villages. Unfortunately, according to the 2001 census
statistics, that is no longer the case (of course, the descendants
of the people who were the local Rusyns are still around; they just
don't feel anymore that they are Rusyns). Perhaps Martin will refer
to / summarize this article when he responds to your question.
