Expert: Georgia is not so important for the United States, as it was under Bush. 21569.jpegAccording to an expert on Russia and former Soviet republics, the Head Department of European security at the noncommercial research organization Rand Corporation Stivan Larrabee, changing of the situation in Abkhazia and South Ossetia is possible only through military action. As reported by the "GHN", Larrabee announced this position in interview to "". Expert said that Georgia is no longer so important to the West, as it was in 2008.

"This is because it is very difficult to change the status quo that has been achieved in Abkhazia and South Ossetia. South Ossetia and Abkhazia, which are legally part of Georgia, are now "satellites"of Russi" - says Larrabee.

"Changing this situation without military means is impossible. But note also, that no one is prepared to use military force to change new status quo" - said the analyst.

As for the position of Barack Obama on these issues, his policy is more prudent than it was during George W. Bush, said Larrabee.

"Bush administration's program to assist democracy regarded Georgia as a "small" country. Bush carried out an active policy with the countries of the former Soviet Union, which took course to the West. The entry of Georgia and Ukraine into NATO is a rhetorical question, which depends on the policy of reload between America Russia" - concluded the head of Department European security at Rand Corporation Stivan Larrabee.
