The present study discusses the development of the orthographical system of the language of the Bačka and Srem Ruthenians, in the Voyvodina region of the former Yugoslavia. In the early 20th century H. Kostel’nyk developed an orthographical system, based on Ukrainian Cyrillic. How- ever, after the Second World War there was an attempt to reform orthog- raphy, which clearly reflected the new political climate. This reform was promoted by J. Bakov and pro-government circles of Rusyns. The aim of the paper is to analyse the reasons for this reform proposal and its failure.
