As far as I know, there are lots of them in Russian military reserve and they were deployed during the first and second Chechenian conflicts and the 8 day war in August of 2011 . Some Middle-Eastern countries use it as well.Mostly upgraded versions.

The Slovakian army still has some of these tanks in service.
The Czech army withdrew from service in 2001.

I don't know where did you take that date, but as far as I know, they are out of service for much longer. We use T72 for a long time with some modifications. Maybe there were some T55A in reserves to 2001, but not in operational use.
