Up until June of 1991, six Republics in Central Europe were known collectively as the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Today, the land is owned by independent states: Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia (including the regions of Kosovo and Vojvodina), and Slovenia.

During this conversation, we will examine the impact of the Balkan Wars, and the tumultuous journey that each of the six nations went through to achieve independence. 

Led by a local historian who is based in Serbia, this conversation will contextualize the political turmoil which preceded the break up of Yugoslavia. 

Vadim is a historian (MA) who has graduated from Lomonosov Moscow State University. His focus is contemporary Russian history. He is working on a PhD dissertation on Stalin's national policy.

Not suitable for children under age 13 (sensitive content).

90 minutes, including a 30 minute Q&A.

A Good Guide through the Maze of the Breakup of Yugoslavia

The number of the ethnicities and conflicts is hard to comprehend from the outside, but Mr Malinovsky did a good job of setting the context (pun intended) and walking us through the evolution of the political spirits within the various areas, and then armed conflicts as they arose. I think he was balanced in his understanding and presentation of the many various motivations and actions of the parties, without ignoring the atrocities and the suffering of so many in this turbulent period. I'd recommend his session for anyone wanting to get an introduction to this most complex geopolitical mess.

Colapse of Yugoslavia

Vadim always amazes me with his knowledge of history whether it is Russia or now his new home in Serbia. this talk was terrifying as it showed man's inhumanity to man! the 6 states(or 7) in the former Yugoslavia have been through much tragic history. I felt it painted a picture of of how we are pawns of the people in power.
