Some scholars claim that this ethnic group is a part of Rusyns. Indeed, in the 19th cetury and in the first part of the 20th century Boykos, as well as most of the population of the present day's Western Ukraine called themselves as Ruthenians (Ukrainian: Русини, Rusyny). Then the term "Ukrainian", that replaced the term "Ruthenians" in Eastern Ukraine a century earlier, has became more common among Western Ruthenians/Ukrainians, including Boykos, as well. According to the recent census practically all Boykos declared their ethnicity as Ukrainian. Rusyns, also called Ruthenians, Ruthenes, Rusins, Rysins, Carpatho-Rusins, and Russniaks, are a modern group of ethnic groups that speak the Rusyn language and are descended from the minority of Ruthenians who did not adopt a Ukrainian national identity and become Ukrainians in the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. ...
