The current geopolitical moment in which we can undoubtedly feel the rhythms of the First World War has imposed for decades the consideration of the unstable situation in Southeastern Europe and the Middle East, provoking interest in the real causes of such events. The question arises as to why the former Yugoslavia was, and now Syria is the most malignant conflict on the planet? The insight into the constitution of the Kingdom of SHS and the Kingdom of Syria through the prism of diplomatic, military and economic and political processes that almost a century ago resulted in the formation of \"artificial\" unsustainable state structures in space of strategic importance for preserving the domination of the great powers, can shed some light on the contemporary processes in these territories.

Keywords: The First World War, the Kingdom of SHS, Southeast Europe, Paris, the Middle East, Cairo, the Kingdom of Syria, great powers, diplomacy, military factor, ethnic integration, economic and political factor
