Book: Serbia, Montenegro and the “Albanian Question”, 1878−1912, 2015

One of the crucial problems in historiography of the Balkans from 1878 to 1912 is the projects about the creation of an independent Albania (proclaimed as an independent in Valona on November 28th, 1912). More specifically, historians tried to explain interests of the Great European Powers to legitimise and protect Albania from the possible its partition between the Balkan allies of Serbia, Montenegro and Greece. However, the position, interests and attitudes of the Balkan allies themselves were marginally analysed. […]

Croatia’s NATO President
Podela Jugoslavije 1941

For almost two millennia, Zagreb has existed under alliances with Roman, Byzantine, Hungarian, Venetian, Hungarian, and Yugoslavian leadership.

Russia has a unique opportunity to revive the South Stream pipeline (to complement the LNG facility in Turkey) by snaking it across Greece and Macedonia along the Balkan Silk Road and onwards to the Serbian hub that it was originally anticipated to connect to before the project was scrapped.

Dismantling Former Yugoslavia, Recolonizing Bosnia-Herzegovina
40 DijalektiStokavskogNarecja

As heavily-armed US and NATO troops enforced the peace in Bosnia, the press and politicians alike portrayed Western intervention in the former Yugoslavia as a noble, if agonizingly belated, response to an outbreak of ethnic massacres and human rights violations. In the wake of the November 1995 Dayton peace accords, the West was eager to touch up its self-portrait as savior of the Southern Slavs and get on with “the work of rebuilding” the newly “sovereign states.” [CONTINUE READING]
