It was invaded on 6 April 1941 by the Axis powers and capitulated eleven days later. = The Second Yugoslavia (29 November 1943-25 June 1991), a socialist successor state to the Kingdom of Yugoslavia, existed under various names, including the Democratic Federation of Yugoslavia (DFY) (1943), the Federal Peoples Republic of Yugoslavia (FPRY) (1946), and the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (SFRY) (1963). It disintegrated in the Yugoslav Wars, which followed the secession of most of the constituent elements of SFRY. = The Federal Republic of Yugoslavia (FRY) (April 27, 1992-February 3, 2003), was a federation on the territory of the two remaining republics of Serbia (including the autonomous provinces of Vojvodina and Kosovo and Metohija) and Montenegro. = The Union of Serbia and Montenegro was formed on February 3, 2003 and officially abolished the name Yugoslavia.
