This thesis analyzes the Kosovo Crisis and the stance of the Russian Federation towards the crisis from the perspective of Theory of International Society (English School). In this analysis, the historical background of the Crisis will be given in order to understand the reasons behind it. Such understanding of the causes will be related to the stance of the Russian Federation to see how the Theory of International Society applies to the Kosovo Intervention by NATO. The stance of the Russian Federation is critical in the sense that the Balkans historically have been a Russian/Soviet sphere of influence. The Russian reactions in a post-Cold War context imply a great deal for the future of international relations, mainly signifying a drift towards more convergent norms and values held by the international society of which Russia is an important part as a great power. Justice within order is given as the description of the ongoing trend in IR.
