Abstract

Among the members of Ruthenian population in Slovakia during years 1945 - 1948 an opinion, that they constitute an idependent nation and not only ethnic minority, was widely accepted. This idea was primarily addressed to the political elites in Czechoslovakia, with aim to convinced them, that representation of Ruthenian population is the relevant and equal partner to be counted with. Correspondingly, with the emphasis placed on national unity of Ruthenians, a question of unified name emerged. Because this was a very sensitive issue, in spite of several endeavours to find a common ground, an agreement in regard to unified name of this ethnic community was not reached. The unified name "Ukrainian", "Ukrainian nationality"... started to be applied only in fifties, with the support of government institutions. During years 1945 - 1948 it was common to find in documents of same provenance a various names used to designate this ethnic community, such as Ukrainians, Russians, Carpathorussians, Ruthenians, Ukrainias and Russians, Ruskies, Carpatho Ukrainias et cetera. We illustrate use of these various names on selected contemporary documents. The representatives of Ruthenian intelligentsia were unable, in regard to this issue, abstain from differing, occassionally contoversial attitudes. This fact was not, till now, sufficiently analysed and its relevance to development of Ruthenian/Ukrainian ethnic community in Slovakia during years 1945 - 1948 was not evaluated.

Keywords
