Rusyn is an East Slavic language with about 620,000
speakers in Slovakia, Serbia, Ukraine, Poland, Croatia,
Hungary, Romania and the Czech Republic. It is also known as
Ruthene or Ruthenian in English.
Rusyn has two distinctive dialects: Carpatho-Rusyn,
which is spoken in Ukraine and is closely related to
Ukrainian and Russian;
and Panonian-Rusyn, which is spoken in Slovakia, Hungary and the
Serbian province of Vojvodina and is more closely related to
West Slavic languages, particularly Slovak,
with some influence from Hungarian.
