Austria-Hungary caught the nation of Serbia in 1908 setting off strains in Europe.
The declaration in October 1908 of Austria-Hungary's extension of Bosnia and Herzegovina upset the delicate perceived leverage in the Balkans, incensing Serbia and skillet Slavic patriots all through Europe.
In spite of the fact that debilitated Russia was compelled to submit, to its humiliation, its remote office still seen Austria-Hungary's activities as excessively forceful and undermining, regardless of Aerenthal's affirmations that he didn't plan to take Macedonia, another debated previous Ottoman territory, next.
Russia's reaction was to support pro-Russian, anti-Austrian sentiment in Serbia and other Balkan provinces, inciting Austrian apprehensions of Slavic expansionism in the region.
This is called the Bosnian Crisis, or the Annexation Crisis, and was unilateral. What they basically did was proclaim that from that point on, Bosnia was their territory and the Ottoman empire could do nothing about it.
