The problem is that Slavs hate each other. Serbs and Croats hate each other. Russians and Ukrainians hate each other. Russians and Poles hate each other. Etc. This hatred leads to wars and lack of economic integration. It is also easy to exploit from outside, as the West does.
Slavs will remain backwards compared to the West as long as this hatred exists.
You are talking something what you do not understand. Croat and Serbs hate each other from Austro-Ungarien times. And that is mostly in Croatia. Reason is very simple, when Serbs flee from Ottoman Turks, Austrian king gave him freedom on one condition(in that time croatian peoples are serfs) they be in army(in that time we can not call it army, but they are armed and on arms when state is need them, they have arms in its homes) from 16 to 60. In Kordun, this is province of Croatia it is a joke about peoples costume: "For women is black, and for men, military uniform." They are like Prussian in Germany. And if you like to know more, you must look on that province in more detail. Ground is very poor, there is no ore for industry, climatic conditions are warm, dry summers, and harsh winters, grass is not favorable for livestock, because there is not enough and so on and on and on..
Big spark in hate is in WWII, when some of Croatian forces heavily influenced in Nazi ideology start to kill Croatian Serbs. And there is some villages who tray to save them, there is some villages who try to kill them. We must be honest and tell loudly in WWII, up to 1943 there is more Croatians in partisan units than Serbian, and more than half of this Croatian citizens in partisan units they are Croatian Serbs(there I am conservative and say more than half, in reality it is from 60 to 70%). There is one reason why is that. Reason is in Chetnik movement in Serbia, they are not killing German solders, they are killing Serbs who try to join in Titos partisan movement, and they do it very well. Croatian Ustasha do not do that, if they capture partisan who have Croatian nationality, he /she will go in Jasenovac and there is no other repression for his/hers family. Chetniks kill entire family.
Right now, we are divided on two sides. One side is more louder then other side. And more than half of population is looking its own business and have friends from all sides and do not participate in politics at all, like me. This two sides are, I will call it rigid conservative political side who manipulate with peoples minds and flirts with Nazi ideology, they have own reason for that and that is economical reasons, not a just a hate of some minority. If they project hate successfully, they will have more economic power in hands, and that mean more power over peoples. They do what other peoples tell them to do(there I think on EU, USA), we destroy our heavy industry, our touristic industry is in bad shape to(and we are very proud on it, but it is shame), people are divided on thing like who is for partisan and who is for Ustasha. Reason is just simple, ustasha want foreign rulers who will rule over us, and used us how they want. And partisan want that Croatian people rule over Croatian people, have job, have money, have own business. So, we can talk about who will rule over who. And that situation is everywhere in the world. If USA will financially collapsed, we will see same situation there like what we see in Donbas, Ukraine, or Balkan peninsula. People are driven by power. Every nation hate its neighboring nation, this is not strange at all. So, hate is not limited on Slavic nation. German hate French, French hate Englishmen...
