This article examines how the geopolitical representations operate in the Kremlin’s imaging and discursive framing in the context of Georgia’s desire to join NATO and the EU. Furthermore, this paper will look at the existence of permanent motives, continuity or discontinuity on the same issues and the same challenges related to Russia’s relations with Georgia over a nine-year period. Russian authorities employed various, tactically shifting and discursively inconsistent framings on the same issues to give the special meaning to the events, their immediate causes, and their implication for the Russian state.
