"Mr President, Georgia is not a simple episode in international politics. It is the beginning of a chain reaction with important consequences. First, it indicates Russia’s military comeback, which will have to be reflected in the new European security strategy under preparation. Second, this apparent indicates Russia’s desire to use its newly acquired energies in making good its losses from the 1990s and pay back for the accompanying humiliation, rather than willingness to contribute to the shaping of the future world. Third, it highlights the weak position of Europe due to increasing energy dependence on Russia and the delay in ratification of the Lisbon Treaty. Fourth, it can either restore or further damage transatlantic unity. Fifth, it demonstrates that international legality needs to be strengthened both in concept and in respect. Sixth, it makes clear that the Black Sea area needs much more attention and involvement from the EU and therefore that it requires more than a simply synergy."@en1
