About the conflict:

The Kosovo-Serbia conflict stems from Kosovo’s declaration of independence from Serbia in 2008, which Serbia does not recognize. Tensions arise from historical, ethnic, and political factors, leading to sporadic clashes and disputes. Efforts to resolve the conflict have been slow, with concerns about Serbia’s ties to Russia.
