The German Empire fought against the Serbs and Yugoslavia several times in the 20th century, and finally took part in the break-up of the second Yugoslavia, thus continuing the continuity of Germany’s policy towards the Serbs throughout the 20th century. The pressures on Serbia and the constructed Serbophobia in German public opinion are by no means accidental.
Since the beginning of the disintegration of Yugoslavia, Germany has played a leading role as the initiator of the  impulses in the recognition of the separatist republics. Hans-Dietrich Genscher, the German Minister of Foreign Affairs, is the personification of that aggressive policy.

  After the fall of Vukovar, he managed to push through the German and then the international recognition of Slovenia and Croatia, successfully leading the campaign against Serbs and Serbia. Regardless of the fact that the real executive military power was in the hands of America, it was German foreign policy and intelligence services that played a first-class role in mobilizing the world public against Yugoslavia and the Serbs.
    The matter did not end only with the wars in Slovenia, Croatia and Bosnia, where the main role in mobilizing the world public was played by Germany, the same campaign in synergy with the USA continued in Kosovo and Metohija. The German intelligence service participated in the recruitment and training of KLA members, and also organized training and collection camps for weapons and uniforms for the KLA. Their service allowed the unhindered collection of funds by the Albanian diaspora in Germany from drugs and prostitution.
  As for the great “penetration to the East”, German policy, of course, could no longer count on the classic military penetration due to the complete degradation of Germany in that area after the Second World War, but continued to act within Ukraine within the wider Western community. In this case, Germany’s participation in the processes of the “colored revolution in Ukraine” from Јushchenko to the “Maidan” is very interesting.
