Summary/Abstract: Russia's strategic goals regarding Georgia are to block its NATO and the EU membership and limit its role in the transit of non-Russian gas and oil to Turkey and later to European countries. These aims are fostered by the improvement of relations between Moscow and Tbilisi, chaos in Georgian domestic policy and the distant prospect of integration with the Euro-Atlantic alliance. Diversification of energy supply sources to the EU requires support for Georgia’s economic development and energy independence.
