"Russia Today" recently made a special report about Rusyns in the Carpathian Ukraine, which can be seen on the RT website:
Today, the political situation in Ukraine, the former Soviet republic, is unstable. Political parties argue over who should rule the country. The people also can’t understand which part to take. But do you know that in Carpathian Ukraine live people who have other problems? They have no land of their own, but they have their national attributes - a flag, an emblem and an anthem. Their language is believed to be dead, but they speak and write poetry in it. They call themselves the Rusyns. This small ethnic group want their voice to be heard and recognized.
