One of remarkable properties of QCD is the gluon Reggeization. The Reggeized gluon is the primary Reggeon in QCD; Pomeron and Odderon appear as compound states of the Reggeized gluons. Due to negative signature the Reggeized gluon gives the main contributions to high energy QCD amplitudes in each order ofperturbation theory. In the leading and next-to-leading logarithmic approximations these amplitudes aregiven by the Regge pole contributions. In the next-to-next-to-leading approximation the pole form of the amplitudes is violated by contributions of three-Reggeon cuts. We discuss these contributions to elastic QCD amplitudes.
