 Central Europe Review - Debate: The Union of Death - Serbia's Black Hand
Serbia and the Serbs have held the attention of the international community, large powers and, in particular, public opinion, since the very moment war began in the Balkans in 1991.

But so long as the Federal State existed, the problem did not really arise as having to do with the creation of Serbia because the Federal State, so long as its practices and constitution was directed in a certain way, could, in fact, become the realization itself of Greater Serbia.
Therefore, the very term "Greater Serbia" really is not correctly used for that period, and the concept of the Greater Serbia did not have to be used and should not be used.
