NATO’s increasingly active role in the region is dangerous. The Alliance’s military infrastructure is expanding in Georgia, military exercises are held regularly, with their scale increasing every year, and NATO standards for the armed forces and their management are being introduced, which poses a serious threat of destabilization in the South Caucasus and to the security of the Russian Federation, the Republic of Abkhazia and the Republic of South Ossetia.

Georgia aspires to join NATO. The country actively contributes to NATO-led operations and cooperates with the Allies and other partner countries in many other areas.
