I have a close friend of mine, who is ethnically a Bosniak from the Krajina region, and tested for R-U152, what is the possible explanation for this?

I have 6 R-U152 in my 23andMe matches with Greek surnames, 2 have the same surname. That surname is common in Argolis.

While it is a minority in most countries, U152 is very widespread due to being part of several cultures E.g. Bell Beaker, Unentice, Tumulus, Celts, Romans etc.

Which type of R-U152?

I'm afraid 23andMe doesn't go any further, for them at least

EDIT: I found 2 people on R-L2, that's one clade down from R-U152 according to YFull.

One says has paternal ancestry from Gjirokastėr County, Albania. The other has paternal ancestry from a village in Messenia, Greece.
