Rusyns as Russians in Ljubljana

At the Ljubljana City Museum, the exhibit on the city's history includes mention of the Rusyns on a label for a jacket from an infantry uniform from the Austrian Empire in World War I:

"Of every 100 soldiers in Franz Josef's I army, 29 were Germans, 19 Hungarians, 15 Czechs, 9 Poles, 8 Russians, 7 Serbs and Croats, 5 Romanians, 5 Slovakians, 3 Slovenes and 1 Italian."

The English says "Russian" but the Slovene clearly says "Rusinov."
