Kosovo, Europe

Description"The area was under the control of Serbia following the 1999 war in Kosovo, after which Albanians in the area called for independence. In 2008, Kosovo declared its independence of Serbia; independence was recognized by the U.S. and several other members of the United Nations, though not recognized by Russia, Serbia, and numerous other countries in the EU. In 2010, the International Court of Justice ruled that Kosovo's declaration of independence was not in violation of the law." Getty Thesaurus of Geographic Names
