The Russian Federation it is necessary to include in the number of countries of " Eastern partnership ", says French expert in geopolitics Tom Flysch de La Neuville in the publication for the magazine.
"in fact, the map of the Eastern partnership quite clearly shows two "protection zone" (which includes 3 countries), which clearly separated the Black sea. First - borders Russia in the East (Ukraine, Belarus, and Moldova), and at the same time, the second - in the South (Azerbaijan, Georgia and Armenia), " writes geopolitical.
He emphasizes that these two geographical areas was used many times Russia and the West for the formation of satellite States. At this moment, according to La Neuville, it was Western Europe, which became a transatlantic external "protective area" USA ", seeks to expand its influence in these regions.
"Russia, which (partnership - ed.) are excluded, not without reason, considers it as a possible institutionalization of the EU's new sphere of influence in the East and in the South," writes geopolitical.
He believes that the countries of "Eastern partnership" is close to becoming " paramilitary frontier ".
"Now they want to prevent strategic and energy Union of Russia and Iran in the South, in the Northern part to drive a wedge between spaces, components historically the heart of Russia. In short, only the inclusion of Russia in this partnership will provide an opportunity to restore the balance and to prepare the ground for dialogue that will lead to peace, " La Neuville.
