Book on suffering of Ruthenians in Homeland War launched

A book on the suffering of Ruthenians in Croatia's Homeland War in 1991 and 1992 was presented in Vukovar on Wednesday, bringing data on the settling of Ruthenians in eastern Slavonia and their participation in the Homeland War, during which 97 were killed or went missing.

Those 97 Ruthenians, of whom 55 were civilians and 42 defenders, represented nearly three percent of their community in Croatia, said author Nikola Pap.

According to the book, 356 Ruthenian defenders took part in the Homeland War, 1,069 were driven out of their homes and 127 were detained in Serb-run detention camps.
