Abstract

The breakup of three ethnically complex federal republics in the early 1990s resulted in fourteen new independent European countries. Each is based on nationality, but each also has its own minorities. From the European part of the former Soviet Union emerged three large Slavic countries-Russia, Ukraine, and Belarus-and four small non-Slavic countries-Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, and Moldova. Czechoslovakia split into the Czech Republic and Slovakia. Yugoslavia divided into five Slavic countries-Slovenia, Croatia, Bosnia and Hercegovina, Macedonia, and a truncated Yugoslavia consisting of Serbia and Montenegro. Civil war erupted in Croatia but has been most fierce in Bosnia and Hercegovina.
