By the collapse of the Soviet Union, as well as Yugoslavia, their republics established new countries. The pretensions of Russia to dominate the Balkans have been openly renewed after its president Vladimir Putin took the absolute power. The Balkan Peninsula has been for many decades the region where great powers test their “political muscles”. Russia has a twofold interest to maintain the influence. The first is economic, whilst the second is military, stopping the spread of NATO alliance to the entire Balkans.
