According to the contract the colonists had to be of the Ruthenian nationality (Ruthens), free people in their status, and Greek-Catholics (Uniates) in their religion.
The Ruthenian community consisted of 8.500 people whose members lived in Ruski Krstur, Kucura, Novi Sad, Šid, Berkasovo, Stari Vrbas, Petrovci and Mikluševci (present Republic of Croatia) in 1848.
Later the number of Ruthenians was growing in Đurđevo and Gospođinci; the Ruthenian colonies in Bačinci, Bikič Dol, Sremska Mitrovica, Novo Orahovo and Subotica were formed too.
