To further tie together the West's plans to penetrate and assimilate all of former Soviet territory, the following day it was reported that "Czech Prime Minister Mirek Topolanek will go to Central Asia on Thursday to have talks on the Eastern Partnership and possible gas supplies for the European Union that would reduce the EU's dependency on Russian gas" and that "During his two-day visit, Topolanek will have talks with top politicians of Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan and Turkmenistan," and, lastly, "Topolanek will negotiate in Central Asia on behalf of the EU as the Czech Republic has been EU president since January."  (Czech News Agency, February 11, 2009)

And to further confirm the predetermined and integrated approach toward all non-Russian Commonwealth of Independent States nations, last December a Central Asian news sources revealed:

"The European Union launched, on 28 November, a rule of law initiative for Central Asia - one of the key elements of its strategy for a new partnership with five Central Asian countries adopted in May 2007.

"The initiative provides for support for Kazakhstan, the Kyrgyz Republic, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan...."

(UzReport [Uzbekistan], December 19, 2008)

Exploiting the issue of alleged European energy security, a campaign first addressed in a major manner by NATO Secretary General Jaap de Hoop Scheffer at the Alliance's 2006 summit in Riga, Latvia, the real intent of the Eastern Partnership is to subordinate eleven of the twelve former Soviet states not already in the EU (and NATO) to Brussels ... and Washington.

By adding Belarus, either through cooptation or 'regime change,' to the Western column Russia will lose its only buffer against NATO in Europe and the only substantive early warning missile surveillance and air defenses it has outside its own borders.

By adding Armenia Russia will effectively be driven out of the South Caucasus.

With the absorption of the five Central Asian nations, Russia would lose all influence throughout the entire former Soviet space except for its own territory.
