You are correct that the "map is rather stale". It is based on data
available before the split of the former Soviet Union, and that data is
not available for current country boundaries. You would be best advised
to use one of the other map-generating packages, which uses more readily
available data formats such as shapefiles.. See the CRAN Spatial task view.
