The article discusses the main causes of the Kosovo crises, with a reflection to the recent NATO-Serbian war pointing out to the fallacies of oversimplifications and failure to account for the complex underlying political social factors characteristic for the southeast Europe and the Balkans. The Kosovo crisis should be seen in principle as one of the phases of the collapse of Yugoslavia which was, in turn, a consequence of the political transition. Of further relevance is to analyze the historical perspective in which the Albanian population traditionally existed in Kosovo. The position of the main players in the Kosovo conflict is further analyzed and several possible scenarios for the future developments in the region are briefly outlined. Finally, the consequences of the NATO war were further strengthen with the landsliding defeat of the previous nationalistic ruling party and victory of democratic opposition in Croatian parliamentary and presidential elections at the beginning of 2000 year. After that nothing is the same in the whole region.
