UK Foreign Secretary David Miliband has called on the EU and Nato to initiate "hard-headed engagement" with Russia in response to its actions in Georgia.
In a speech in Ukraine's capital, Kiev, he urged them to bolster their allies, rebalance the energy relationship with Russia and defend international law.
He also warned Russian President Dmitry Medvedev not to start a new Cold War.
On Tuesday, Mr Medvedev recognised the independence of Georgia's two breakaway regions, South Ossetia and Abkhazia.
Earlier, Ukraine's President Victor Yushchenko said his country was a hostage in a war waged by Russia against countries in the old Soviet bloc.
