Romania as a Factor for Consolidation of the "European Union" Project versus Russia's New Generation War in Europe

Angela Mihaela Ene


This topic highlights the current stage of European interstate construction from the perspective of EU - Russia cooperation, but also a medium and long-term analysis of the risks generted by the regional and international security policy through a new type of war that Russia has perfected in every way. In this context, Romania becomes an important actor on the European security scene, but also a stability enhancer on the Eastern flank of the Union for the states that have membership status for pre-accession to the European Union. Called the 5th generation war or the combination of low-end and high-end warfare, it is one of the most dangerous military tactics of the time. Vladimir Putin's motivation to create the Eurasian empire is more and more visible.

At present, in Europe, Russia has established the operational roots of endurance struggle by co-opting Hungary, Bulgaria, Serbia, Macedonia, Albania and, to a certain extent, Greece. In parallel with these states, which are in a relationship of diplomatic and economic tactics with Russia, the other states such as Moldova, Ukraine, Estonia, Lithuania, Latvia, Armenia and Georgia are more reliant on economic dependence than they would have liked to be. Therefore, this military-economic configuration is part of the criteria that call Russia's new generation war.
