Constitutive summit program was completed on 7 May in Prague. The program is aimed at EU rapprochement with Azerbaijan, Armenia, Georgia, Moldova, Belarus and Ukraine.

We have clear video where they say they are counting on Russia's help, this is so. The officers were in touch with those officers, who previously operated in Georgia, but they have long departed from Georgia, and these officers do not serve a long time. So the connection before were, of course, were. But in Georgia has changed a whole generation at all levels of bureaucracy, including the military, a small army … That is why the special relationship with the present can not be at this stage. "
