Russian AF - North Caucasus MD..
Georgia theater-related AFBs(roughly)

Sochi - Mi-8
Mozdok - Mi-8
Budyonnovsk - Mi-8, Mi-24, Su-25
Maykop - Mig-23
Astrakhan-Ashchunluk - Mi-8, Mig-23, Mig-29
Astrakhan-Privolzhskiy - Su-27
Lebyazhe - Su-24
Marinovka - Su-24MR
Morozovsk - Su-24
Krymsk - SU-27, Mi-8

According to Wiki, russian su24, su25, su27 and Tu22M3 were operated during this conflict.
Tu22M3 seems operate from AFB outside PMC theater coverage.
another link said Mig29 involved/over Tskhinvali too. Mig-29 shot down a georgia UAV over East Black Sea in early 2008.
