Summary/Abstract: The new state Kosovo is the final stage of dismemberment of the former Yugoslavia, a province with a special statute. There exists no Resolution of the Security Council of ONU which would proclaim the independence of the new state. There are six countries members of the EU which oppose this independence: Romania Cyprus, Spain, Greece, Slovakia, Bulgaria. These countries have ethical minorities on their territory and they are afraid that such a moment would create a precedent for other ethnic demands in the area.
