The paper takes into account the development of modern nations and modern nationalities and its contemporary evolution. The current affirmed model of nation is the Civic Nation model, based on elements as laws and citizenship. Such a model coexist in states with multiple Ethnic Nationalities (an idea developed in XIX century based more on cultural elements). This model is the one pursued by the Russian Federation, adopting the Rossijan Civic Nation to embrace all the Ethnic Nationalities inhabitating the country. The historical analysis on the development of nationalism is based on the MA Thesis in International Relations 'Bosnia and Herzegovina: Nationalism and Constitutionalism', Patricio Ignacio Barbirotto, University Ca' Foscari of Venice, Italy, 2013.
