The paper includes a color map of Georgia.

Georgian Hot Spots
Attitude of Poland, Romania and Bulgaria to Georgia

From the Paper:

"Some believe that the actions of Russia including the most recent invasion in 2008 are a concerted effort on her part to destabilize the nation and allow it to voluntarily reassert itself as a protectorate of Russia. More diplomatic methods, such as Georgia's entrance in the CIS (Commonwealth of Independent States) a loose organization of former Soviet nations including Russia seems not to have been enough for Russia in the long term, especially as Georgia increasingly flirts with rival social and economic interests such as asking for and achieving support from future European Union members Poland, Romania and Bulgaria for sponsorship and support for entrance into the EU, an organization that mirrors Russian desires for its own coalition organization the CIS, of which Georgia is a part."
