  1. Serbia and Montenegro

    Serbia and Montenegro was a country in the Balkans, created from the two remaining republics of Yugoslavia. The republics of Serbia and Montenegro together established a federation in 1992 as the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. In 2003, it was reconstituted as a state union officially known as the State Union of Serbia and Montenegro. The FRY aspired to be a sole legal successor to the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, but those claims were opposed by other former republics. The United Nations also denied its request to automatically continue the membership of the former state. Eventually, after the overthrow of Slobodan Milošević from power as president of the federation in 2000, the country rescinded those aspirations and accepted the opinion of Badinter Arbitration Committee about shared succession, and reapplied for and gained UN membership on 2 November 2000. From 1992 to 2000, some countries, including the United States, referred to the FRY as "Serbia and Montenegro". The FRY was initially dominated from 1992 to 1997 by Slobodan Milošević as President of Serbia, and his supporters. Milošević, president of Serbia since 1989, installed and forced the removal of several Federal Presidents and Prime Ministers. Federal Prime Minister Milan Panić became frustrated with Milošević's domineering behaviour during diplomatic talks in 1992, and told Milosevic to "shut up" because Milošević's position was officially subordinate to his position. Milosevic later forced Panić to resign. However this situation changed after 1997 when Milošević's second and last legal term as Serbian President ended. He then had himself elected Federal President, thus entrenching the power that he already de facto held. By this time however, the influence of Slobodan Milošević was confined to Serbia only as Montenegro had experienced internal regime change in 1996 when former Milošević ally Milo Đukanović reversed his policies, showed resilience by becoming leader of his party and subsequently dismissing former Montenegrin leader Momir Bulatović, a man who remained loyal to Milošević. As Bulatović was given central positions in Belgrade from that time, Đukanović continued to govern Montenegro and isolated his republic from Serbia so that from 1996 to 2006, Montenegro and Serbia were only nominally one country - governance at every feasible level was conducted locally.
