Summary/Abstract: The controversial issue of creation of a Yugoslavian state on the eve and during World War I is defined in polemical style in this article. At the same time, the French-Russian cooperation at the turn of the 19th and 20th centuries is considered as a wide geostrategic context for the Serbian Yugoslavian project because it promoted reorientation of Serbia from Russia to France and resulted in creation of the Yugoslav state. The latest reviews of Serbian and foreign historiography aim to define the ideas and processes which made it possible. The studied works partly disprove of and partly develop the historiography of the previous period, which is also partially considered in the article.
