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 the Treaty of Trianon. Hungary again occupied and annexed it as part of Carpathian Ruthenia in 1939 and held it until the end of the war. 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]
