Former Yugoslavia

Yugoslavia ("Jugoslavija" in the Latin alphabet; English: South Slavia, or literally The Land of South Slavs) describes three political entities that existed successively on the Balkan Peninsula in Europe, during most of the 20th century. The seven countries that were once part of Yugoslavia are Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Kosovo, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, and Slovenia. The Kingdom of Yugoslavia (1 December 1918–November 29, 1943/1945), also known as the First Yugoslavia, was a monarchy formed as the "Kingdom of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes" after World War I and re-named on 6 January 1929 by Alexander I of Yugoslavia. It was invaded on 6 April 1941 by the Axis powers and its army capitulated eleven days later. The legal royal government in exile was recognized and supported by Allied forces. In 1943, the communist led resistance movement proclaimed a new country called Democratic Federal Yugoslavia. The Kingdom was officially abolished in 1945. In 1946, the country was renamed to Federal People's Republic of Yugoslavia. The parliamentary democracy was suspended and a communist state was established. In 1963, the country was renamed again to Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRY). Starting in 1991, the SFRY disintegrated in the Yugoslav Wars which followed the secession of most of the republic's constituent elements. The Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY) (April 27, 1992–February 4, 2003), was a federation on the territory of the two remaining republics of Serbia (including the province of Vojvodina, Kosovo) and Montenegro. The Union of Serbia and Montenegro was formed on February 4, 2003, and officially abolished the name "Yugoslavia." On June 3 and June 5, 2006, Montenegro and Serbia respectively declared their independence, thereby ending the last remnants of the loose agreement. On February 18, 2008, Kosovo unilaterally declared independence from Serbia, an act not recognized by Serbia further dividing the former country.
