The Yugoslav partisans were the main anti-fascist resistance movement which fought against the occupation of Yugoslavia by Axis forces during World War II.

Probably the first "official" mention of the term Yugoslav (as opposed to simply south Slav) was the forming of the group of advocates of a joint country of South Slavs, by politicians from Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina, which were then both in the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy.
The new "Yugoslav" cause (from Jugoslav, meaning "Southern Slav") was receiving an increasing amount of support: in the western states, the people were generally tired of Austria-Hungary and a union with the eastern states was probably seen as the best way to come out of the anomie caused by the Great War.

The offensive of the Macedonian army against the UCK (NLA) in the area was the most striking verification of this situation and shows anything but equality between the nationalities.
The decisive question is that of national self-determination for the Albanians in Macedonia and southern Serbia, who in the 20th century never had the opportunity to decide freely for themselves (not even in "socialist" Yugoslavia).
The constant orientation of this policy is the consistent refusal of the peoples' right to national self-determination and the imposition of short-term plans that usually aim at the reinforcement of the state apparatuses at the expense of the populations.
