1 Serbia and Montenegro The former nation of Serbia and Montenegro (established, February 4 th , 2003; disestablished June 5 th , 2006) has had a tumultuous past, therefore a brief introduction to the history of the nation is important to a better understanding of the countries’ current states. 1 Both as part of the Former Republic of Yugoslavia under the late, former President Slobodan Milosevic, and in recent history (in May of 2006 with Montenegro’s decision to take advantage of a provision in the Union’s conventional charter to become an independent state, 2 and in the past few days when a Serbian nationalist party was elected to office with the majority 28 percent of the vote 3 ) the past of these two nations has been a colorful one. Serbia and Montenegro was formally a part of the Republic of Yugoslavia, along with Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and Macedonia. It was officially named the Republic of Yugoslavia in 1929. The FRY (Former Republic of Yugoslavia) was annexed by Nazi Germany from 1941-1945. From 1945-2003 Serbia and Montenegro were officially recognized as part of the then existing Republic of Yugoslavia. In 1992, Serbia was no longer recognized as part of the United Nations as a result of Milosevic’s wars to unite ethnic Serbians in the region and his ousting of non-ethnic Serbians from Bosnia, Kosovo, Croatia, and Macedonia. 4
