After the blitzkrieg in August 2008 and now the invasion of Ukraine, Europe does not want to rekindle the strategic front that passes through Stalin’s increasingly militarized region
Ukraine and Moldova are candidates for EU membership, Georgia is not. Because? In 2003, the Rose Revolution led by Mikhail Saakashvili, then twenty years of acceleration and reverse with approaches to Brussels and Washington culminating in the blitzkrieg of August 2008, a preview of what the Kremlin perhaps wanted to replicate in Ukraine: Russian invasion, separation in fact, the self-proclaimed Republics of Abkhazia and South Ossetia still controlled by Moscow today. Two hundred thousand displaced persons. For corruption, the country is 45th out of 180 in the Transparency International 2021 index, ahead of Moldova and Ukraine in 105th and 122nd position respectively. Since 2012, the Georgian Dream party founded by billionaire Bidzina Ivanishvili, premier until 2013 and officially out of politics since then, has been in power. The European Parliament has recommended that it be sanctioned for ties with Russia. And after the attack on Kiev, Europe does not want to rekindle this strategic front in the post-Soviet space: Moscow has bases in Abkhazia and South Ossetia, the border with the Georgian territory that passes through the native region of Iosif Stalin is increasingly militarized.
