OFFS for children in Montenegro
Montenegro is located in Western Balkan in Southern/Central Europe. The country was a federal unit in the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia, but became independent following the collapse of the federation in 1992. Montenegro subsequently formed a union with Serbia, which collapsed in 2006, when Montenegro declared independence.
During the 1991–1995 Bosnian War and Croatian War, Montenegrin police and military forces joined Serbian troops in the attacks on Dubrovnik, Croatia.
Montenegro is multi-ethnic state, in which no ethnic group forms a majority. Major ethnic groups include Montenegrins, Serbs, Bosnians, Albanians and Croats.
