1992: Bosnia and Herzegovina votes by referendum to declare independence from the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia. Although the referendum was overwhelmingly approved, the vote was largely boycotted by Bosnian Serbs, who opposed independence. The declaration of independence was soon followed by the Bosnian War, lasting until late 1995.
