The efforts of Albanians living in Macedonia on the Kosovo issue date back to before and after World War II. Fewer things have been noted before World War II, while much more data has been recorded after this period. Various historians and researchers have written on this subject, but a lot remains to be done, not only for the newer period but also for the earlier period, in particular by using human resources that are still accessible, as well as local and foreign archives. According to studies and analyses of the development of global politics around the Balkans in 1997, there seems to have been a rapid turn of course in politics to not support the war in all Albanian areas. We remember that Albania in the same year was going through very critical moments after the collapse of the pyramid firms, in which case large quantities of weaponry emerged from the barracks. Exactly these weapons, specifically some of them were transferred through illegal groups to Kosovo in which case it was used to begin the process of Kosovo's eventual liberation from Serbia. All Albanians were mobilized around the world and the war broke out, which with the help of NATO received a liberating epilogue. In this work, through authentic narratives, we will focus mainly on general assistance, provided by the Albanians of Macedonia in 1999, including their direct participation in the KLA, diplomatic engagement, organizing demonstrations to sensitize the situation, assistance to refugees, the opening of the 'free Kosovo' war radio, etc.
