Just before the XXIV Lemko Cultural Autumn, the recent edition of “Besida” journal was published (No. 5 (152), September-October 2016), where you can find, among others:
- Валерій Падяк, Русинофобія на Свободі! (Valerii Padyak, Rusynophobia in Svoboda!);
- Севериян Косовскый, Польско-лемківска таблиця в Ріпках – знищена (Seweryn Kosowski, Polish-Lemko board in Ropki – damaged);
- Петро Трохановскій, Фіялкове XVIII Вересовиско (Petro Trochanowski, Purple XVIII heath);
- Ваньо Дзядик, Лемківскє Літо в Чмельові (Vanio Dziadyk, Lemko Summer in Trzmielowa);
- Севериян Косовскый, Чужына і єй Ватра (Seweryn Kosowski, The exile and its Vatra);

- Петро Трохановскій, 4000 кільометрів в 7 дни (Petro Trochanowski, 4000 kilometers in 7 days).
Apart from the articles mentioned above, in the recent edition of the Lemko Association journal “Besida”, you can find a reprint of an article in Polish from the “Gazeta Krakowska”, dedicated to recollections by Dymitr Sabatovich from Długie (Dolhe). The last pages of the journal present recollections of the Archbishop of Przemyśl-Nowy Sącz Eparchy, Adam, of blessed memory, as well as a brief photoreport from the funeral service. The journal’s section Одшыли од нас (“Those who passed away”) is also dedicated to the memory of the Rusyn poet and political activist, Gabriel Gattinger-Klebashko, who passed away in July this year. Along with the article by Damian Trochanowski, there is a commentary of Petro Trochanowski – Од брата Петра (From brother Petro). This edition of “Besida,” much like the previous one, informs not only about the current events from the Rusyn world or historical anniversaries, it also includes a lot of Rusyn poetry and prose.
