Yasinia (Ukrainian: Ясіня, Hungarian: Körösmezö) is an urban-type settlement in Rakhiv Raion of Zakarpattia Oblast in Ukraine. Population: 8,454 (2013 est.)[1].

It was the site of the Hutsul Republic after World War I, and the birthplace of several prominent Ukrainians declaring independence from Kingdom of Hungary. This republic was ended by Romanian troops on June 11, 1919. Yasinia was shortly reoccupied by Hungary in July 1919 and passed to Czechoslovakia according to Treaty of Trianon. Hungary again occupied it like whole Zakarpattia between 1939-1944. It was given to the Soviet Union in 1945.

The wooden church in Yasinia appears on several stamps of the area, including the first stamp of Carpatho-Ukraine.[2][3]
