Analogies and Differences of Systemic Crises in the Former Republic of Yugoslavia and Ukraine

Preconditions and consequences of one of the hardest and longest conflicts of the 20th century the Yugoslav war of the 1990-s are studied. The leverages and mechanisms to have been engaged by the new Balkan states republics of the former Yugoslavia to deal with its consequences are outlined. The possibilities of using the experience of countries that emerged in the territory of the former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia to overcome the systemic crisis in Ukraine and recover the Donbas economy on the qualitatively new technological basis are explored. It is determined that, in order to counteract the separatist movements in the East of Ukraine, the state authorities should be reformed and strengthened, and the state itself is to undergo the effective economic reforms. The key factor of successful reforms (and, therefore, protection of the territorial integrity of the state) is social confidence gained by the state authorities which are to demonstrate real effects of their actions in the economic, social, financial, humanitarian and other areas to the citizens of Ukraine.
Keywords: Yugoslav conflict, new Balkan states, systemic crisis, economic recovery, Donbas.
