1944-1991 The Soviet Period

After its liberation in 1945 by the Soviets, Carpatho-Rus was once again part of Czechoslovakia, but was transferred as a gift to the Soviet Union by Klement Gottwald’s government, and became part of the Ukrainian Soviet Socialist Republic in June 1945.

After the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the province remained in independent Ukraine, despite demands raised by some of its residents to reunite with Czechoslovakia. The reunion, however, became impossible once Czechoslovakia disintegrated.
