Russian annexation of Crimea alarms Georgia

Russia controls a fifth of Georgian territory following the 2008 conflict in Abkhazia and South Ossetia.

    Russia's annexation of Crimea has made its other neighbours anxious.

    Many in Georgia are worried Moscow will undermine its plans to seek NATO membership as it forms closer ties to the West.

    Following conflicts over Abkhazia and South Ossetia in 2008, Russian forces now control 20 percent of recognised Georgian territory.
