There is an opinion that the creation of nation-states in Italy, Germany, in the Balkans led to a sharp aggravation of conflicts in Europe. Do you share this position?

I share this position. So Germany seeks to redistribute spheres of influence. Having embarked on the path of colonial conquest later than other countries, Germany was significantly inferior to them in the size of the occupied territories. The German colonies were twelve times smaller than the English, and in addition were poor in raw materials. The imperial leadership was acutely worried about this “injustice” and, activating the colonial policy for the first time raised the question of redivision of the world already divided by European countries, the Balkans turned into a “powder magazine” of Europe.
