  The Dispatch - Serving the Lexington, NC - News
Rusyns (also referred to as Ruthenians, Ruthenes, Rusins, Carpatho-Rusyns, and Rusnaks) are a modern ethnic group that speaks the Rusyn language and are descended from the minority of Ruthenians who did not adopt a Ukrainian national identity in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries.
Rusyns are an ethnic group that never attained the status of independent statehood, except for a half a year period in 1919 (Podkarpatska Rus) and a few days in 1939 (Carpatho-Ukraine).
Many Rusyns are Eastern Catholics, who since the Union of Brest in 1596 and the Uzhorod Union in 1646, are united with other catholics under the spiritual leadership of the Pope, but retain their Old Slavonic liturgy and most of the outward forms of the Greek or Eastern Orthodox Church.

 languagehat.com: RUSYN/RUTHENIAN.
The World Academy of Rusyn Culture has a good site on the language called Rusyn by its speakers and sometimes Ruthenian in English (or "western Ukrainian" by those who do not recognize it as a separate language):
Rusyn is also spoken in a few scattered communities in northeastern Hungary and among emigrants from Carpathian Rus’ who settled in the *Vojvodina and Srem regions of present-day Yugoslavia and far eastern Croatia and in the United States and Canada...
Another difficulty in classification is related to the fact that the dialects have in the past and continue to be influenced by numerous sociolinguistic or extralinguistic factors from the larger world in which Rusyns live, whether in Ukraine, Slovakia, Poland, Romania, Hungary, Yugoslavia, the United States, or Canada.
