@Sviatogor all of the above :smiley: First mention of Albanians on Balkan peninsula is from 11th century, they claim they’re Illyrians and that they descend from some of the first Europeans… They never had a state of their own until 1912 so they could freely migrate through land of their rulers Byzantines, Bulgarians, Serbs, Ottomans… During the regime of Enver Hoxha (loyal to USSR and extremely oppressive), our (Yugoslav) government let significant number of Albanians into Yugoslavia, mostly Kosovo, although, they were already a majority there (but not as absolute). Albanian national goal is “Ethnic Albania” or Greater Albania, it includes Albania, roughly a third of Macedonia, Kosovo and Metohija plus Preševo, Bujanovac, Medveđa and smaller parts of Montenegro and Greece, they were already on those territories when that national ideal was created in 19th century. Albanians indeed have higher fertility rates, especially Muslim ones, so they got that going for them too.
