Even before the first world war already quite a lot of distant mountain communities were de facto Orthodox, where priests simply ceased to follow the Uniate canons. However, much more significant changes took place in the interwar period. The number of parishes statistics seems to be more reliable and consistent even though it may not necessarily directly translate into the numbers of adherents. By number

In 1939, just before the outbreak of World War II, it had an estimated 35.1 million inhabitants. Almost a third of these were of minority groups: 13.9% Ukrainians (Ukraine); 10% Jews; 3.1% Belarusians; 2.3% Germans; and 3.4% percent Czechs, Lithuanians and Russians. At the same time significant number of ethnic Poles lived outside the country borders (see Poles in the former Soviet Union). *1928 – The Outerbridge Crossing and Goethals Bridge in Staten Island, New York are both opened. *1945 – Carpathian Ruthenia is annexed by the Soviet Union. *1950 – The United States (United States men's national soccer team) defeats (England v United States (1950)) England (England national football team) during the 1950 FIFA World Cup. In March 1939, Ribbentrop assigned the largely ethnic Ukrainian Sub-Carpathian Ruthenia (Carpathian Ruthenia) region of Czecho-Slovakia, which had just proclaimed its independence as the Republic of Carpatho-Ukraine, to Hungary, which then proceeded to annex it after a short war. Rothwell, Victor ''The Origins of the Second World War'', Manchester: University of Manchester Press, 2001 pages 118–119. The significance of this lies in that there had been many fears in the Soviet Union in the 1930s that the Germans would use Ukrainian nationalism as a tool for breaking up the Soviet Union. The establishment of an autonomous Ukrainian region in Czecho-Slovakia in October 1938 had promoted a major Soviet media campaign against its existence on the grounds that this was part of a Western plot to support separatism in the Soviet Ukraine (Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic). Rothwell, Victor ''The Origins of the Second World War'', Manchester: University of Manchester Press, 2001 page 119. By allowing the Hungarians to destroy Europe's only Ukrainian state, Ribbentrop had signified that Germany was not interested (at least for the moment) in sponsoring Ukrainian nationalism. This in turn helped to improve German-Soviet relations by demonstrating that German foreign policy was now primarily anti-Western rather than anti-Soviet. thumb 250px Bavarian playing cards (image:Schafkopf Tarock bayerisches Bild.jpg) The cards of Hungary (Culture of Hungary), Austria (Culture of Austria), Slovenia (Culture of Slovenia), the Czech Republic (Culture of the Czech Republic), Northern Croatia (Culture of Croatia), Slovakia (Culture of Slovakia), Western Romania (Culture of Romania), Transcarpathia (Carpathian Ruthenia) in Ukraine (Culture of Ukraine), Vojvodina in Serbia (Culture of Serbia) and South Tyrol use the same suits (Hearts, Bells, Leaves and Acorns) as the cards of Southern and Eastern Germany. They usually have a deck of 32 or 36 cards. The numbering includes VII, VIII, IX, X, Under, Over, King and Ace. Some variations with 36 cards have also the number VI. The VI in bells also has the function like a joker (joker (playing card)) in some games and it is named ''Welli'' or ''Weli''. In 1918, Slovakia and the regions of Bohemia, Moravia, Silesia (Czech Silesia) and Carpathian Ruthenia formed a common state, Czechoslovakia, with the borders confirmed by the Treaty of Saint Germain (Treaty of Saint-Germain-en-Laye (1919)) and Treaty of Trianon. In 1919, during the chaos following the breakup of Austria-Hungary, Czechoslovakia was formed with numerous Germans and Hungarians within the newly set borders. A Slovak patriot Milan Rastislav Štefánik (1880–1919), who helped organize Czechoslovak regiments against Austria-Hungary during the First World War, died in a plane crash. In the peace following the World War, Czechoslovakia emerged as a sovereign European nation. **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).

This is contrasted implicitly with ''Prykarpattia'' (Ciscarpathia; " Near-Carpathia), an unofficial region in Ukraine, to the immediate north-east of the central area of the Carpathian Range, and potentially including its foothills, the Subcarpathian basin and part of the surrounding plains. Among self-identifying ethnic Ukrainians, Carpathian Ruthenia is usually known simply as Transcarpathia. From a Hungarian, Slovak

and Czech perspective the region is usually described as Subcarpathia (literally "below the Carpathians"), although technically this name refers only to a long, narrow basin that flanks the northern side of the mountains. During the period in which the region was administered by the Hungarian states (History of Hungary) it was officially referred to in Hungarian as Subcarpathia ( ) or North-Eastern Upper Hungary.
