    I think she might be Jewish, as she seems to celebrate Passover according to her Instagram.

    Metro and Anna spoke “Russian”. Maybe that means they were Rusyn. We need bablah on this.

      Whenever there’s a man called Mitro or Dmitro, there’s 99,9% chance they’re either Rusyn or Ukrainian. What that man definitely isn’t is Slovak or Czech.

      Anyway, yes, you’re right, they’re Rusyn.
