    States are unique and individual entities. However, geographic proximity,
    a common history and fate may cause existential threats to have common causes and
    solutions. To understand how, and why, states experience transnational organized
    crime as a national security threat differently, it is necessary to learn about the states
    and the culture of organized crime in the geographic region in which they are
    embedded. The objective here is to present the Post-Soviet Political Criminal Nexus
    as a part of the identity of Newly Independent States in the Black Sea Region
    (Azerbaijan, Georgia, Moldova and Ukraine) which poses an international security
    threat and impedes democratic development.
