Serbians were victims of genocide during the Second World War at the hands of the Ustaše. More recently, Serbians themselves perpetrated genocides and mass killings against Croatians, Bosnian Muslims, and Kosovo Albanians during the Balkan Wars of the 1990s. In 2022, political tensions with Kosovo are at a renewed high and Serbia still does not recognize Kosovo as an independent state. The Republika Srpska has also threatened to separate from the greater Bosnia. This could potentially reignite violence in the region and violates the Dayton Accords of 1995.
