Hey, I am kinda new to the forum.
I have family in Zakarpattja (Subc. Rus) and I must say, situation with their national identity isn't bright.
Old people, who lived there at days of 1st Czechoslovak republic (well, many of them are dead now) identify themeselves as Rusyns, but next generations…They consider themeselves as Ukraians, even thought they speak Rusyn, their mothers were telling Rusyn tales (…)
And here are some pictures from Zakarpattja I made.

Beautiful photos, I hope to visit by next summer.  do you think that  the youth shifting to a Ukrainian identity is due to the communist era forcing this or is because of travel or cultural influence of Ukraine?
