Rusyn language

Rusyn (also called Ruthenian or Carpatho-Rusyn) is an East Slavic language very closely related to Ukrainian. In 1993, it has some 100,000 speakers in Preshov[?] region in Slovakia. It is also used in Ukraine, possibly in Poland and Romania. Rusyn is sometimes called a dialect of Ukrainian, but speakers are reported to consider themselves distinct from Ukrainians.
