How did the name Yugoslavia finally disappear? – 2003.

The name Yugoslavia was introduced by King Aleksandar Karadjordjevic in October 1929.

On February 4, 2003, the Federal Republic of Yugoslavia was officially renamed Serbia and Montenegro. This finally removed the name Yugoslavia from the list of world countries, after more than 73 years. Namely, the name Yugoslavia was introduced by King Aleksandar Karadjordjevic in October 1929, when he changed the name of the country from the Kingdoms of Serbs, Croats and Slovenes to the Kingdom of Yugoslavia.

Milosevic’s Federal Republic of Yugoslavia was considered the successor to the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRY). After Milosevic came to power, the state initially continued to use the name Yugoslavia, but eventually, after the agreement of Serbia and Montenegro, the name was dropped, and the common state was given the two-syllable name Serbia and Montenegro. With the independence of Montenegro in 2006, this state collapsed, and since then there are two states – the Republic of Serbia and the Republic of Montenegro.
