Hmmm I thought Rusyn was a dialect of Ukrainian and would be mutual understandable?  My family lost the language after a generation here and I still don't know what they spoke.  My cousins use the eastern Slovak dialect with a large German influence.  Never asked if they still speak Rusyn or not.

I imagine it would be more telligible (if not very similiar) with the Ukrainian dialects spoken in America and Canada, which are based on 1890s Galizien Dialects which retrospectively are a purer form of Ukrainian without the Russian / Soviet influence.

I assume that's the case because there are mixed communities of Rusyn and Ukrainians in America and Canada and I've never heard of an inability to converse between the two.
