This volume of the Security Review focuses on the Russia-Ukraine war. Regardless of the outcome of the war, it will fundamentally alter the post-Cold War world order and have a major impact on Georgia’s security environment.

Alex Petriashvili tells us about the reaction of the international community to the start of the war by Russia, what the West has done so far and what we should expect from it in the future. To what extent is the Georgian security system ready to withstand such challenges? You will read about this in Giorgi Bilanishvili’s article. What is the role of Turkey in the current war? Zurab Batiashvili writes about this issue. Alexander Kvakhadze will tell us about the response to the war in the occupied territories of Georgia and the North Caucasus and why the term “cannon fodder” is heard most often there.
