The Yugoslav Wars were a series of separate but related ethnic conflicts, wars of independence, and insurgencies fought in the former Yugoslavia (present day: Kosovo, Serbia, Slovakia, Croatia, Montenegro, Northern Macedonia and Bosnia and Herzegovina) from 1991 to 2001, which led to the breakup of the Yugoslav federation in 1992. Its constituent republics declared independence, despite unresolved tensions between ethnic minorities in the new countries, fueling the wars.
