South Caucasus, like Ukraine, is a target of Russia’s aggressive policy that aims to subjugate the nations of the former Soviet Union. The annexation of Crimea and the support for separatism in Donbas show the increasing role played by the military, and by political subversion, in Russia's regional policy. The European Union and NATO should strengthen security ties with Georgia, the most integrated with the Euro-Atlantic community among the countries of the region. The government in Tbilisi needs the support of its Western allies to optimise the armed forces in the face of asymmetrical threats similar to those in Ukraine.
