Polityka bezpieczeństwa jest charakteryzowana jako postmodernistyczna, odrzuca-jąca środki militarne w polityce międzynarodowej. Jednak takie podejście zawodzi w przypadku nowoczesnych i niepewnych państw, które są miejscem zamieszkania dla ich wschodnich sąsiadów i które chcą liczyć na UE jako gwarantację bezpieczeństwa. W artykule przedstawiono, że zasada bezpieczeństwa UE ignoruje charakter jej wschod-nich sąsiadów, a tym samym nie może być aktorem bezpieczeństwa w regionie. Przypa-dek rosyjsko-ukraińskiej wojny służy sprawdzeniu tej hipotezy.
