to Ukraine. The Treaty and its consequences dominated Hungarian public life and political culture in the inter-war period. In addition, the government of Hungary swung more and more to the right in those years; eventually, under Regent Miklos Horty, Hungary established close relations with Benito Mussolini's Italy and Adolf Hitler's Germany. The alliance with Nazi Germany made possible Hungary's regaining of southern Czechoslovakia in the First Vienna Award of 1938 and Subcarpathia (Carpathian Ruthenia) in 1939. But that and the subsequent military conquest of Carpathian (Carpathian Mountains) Ruthenia in 1939 still did not satisfy Hungarian political ambitions. These awards allocated only a fraction of the territories lost by the Treaty of Trianon, and in any event, the loss that the Hungarians resented the most was that of Transylvania. The music of Haydamaky is inspired by various ethnic music from around the world, especially from various regions of Ukraine, such as Polesia, Bukovina, and Transcarpathia (Carpathian Ruthenia). Other influences include the Romanian folklore, punk music (punk rock) sound of Shane McGowan and by the reggae of such bands like Burning Spear and Black Uhuru. Sometimes Carpatho-Rusyns (Rusyns) and Ukrainians who emigrated from Carpathian Ruthenia in the 19th century and the beginning of 20th century identify as Russian Americans. More recent emigres would often refer to this group as the 'starozhili', which translates to mean "old residents". This group became the pillar of the Russian Orthodox Church in America (Orthodox Church in America). Today, most of this group has become assimilated into the local society, with ethnic traditions continuing to survive primarily around the church. In the late 1920s, external pressure on the part of the Polish authorities seriously impaired further growth of Plast on its territory, and eventually led to an outright abolition of Ukrainian Scouting in 1928 in the Volyn region, and in Halychyna in 1930. However, Plast continued to flourish in Carpathian Ruthenia, the ethnic Ukrainian area within Czechoslovakia, and maintained a close liaison with the underground Scout units in parts of central Ukraine under the Soviet Union until World War II and Western Ukraine under Poland. **Patriarch Filaret (Mykhailo Denysenko) expanded by Irpen (User:Irpen) 07:13, Jun 9, 2005 (UTC) *New stub: '''Carpatho-Ukraine''', mostly material from Carpathian Ruthenia.

As a result of First Vienna Award Czechoslovakia was forced to give up territory to Poland and Hungary (southern Slovakia and Carpathian Ruthenia. While conflicts with Polish forces were minor, clash with Hungarian forces and partisans (''Szabadczapatok'') was more intense (starting in November 1939). From January to March 1939 (until Czechoslovakia was dissolved) heavy clashes occurred between Hungarian forces and guard and the army in Ruthenia. Czechoslovakian units were forced to withdraw in three directions - to Slovakia, Poland and Romania. During March the units also faced local insurgents (''Sičovci'') attempting to establish independent Ruthenian state (Carpatho-Ukraine).
