Georgia recalls that there is a “day of Soviet occupation” on its calendar

Today (25 February) Georgia marks the “mournful date” - “Day of the Soviet occupation”. Opening the meeting of the Cabinet of Ministers of the country, the newly-minted (from 30 December 2015) Georgian Prime Minister Giorgi Kvirikashvili issued a pompous speech in connection with the “mournful date”, in which he condemned the “invaders and aggressors” and called the Georgian army “a worthy force on guard sovereignty. The head of the Georgian government, Kvirikashkli, did not intend to stop there, and said that Georgia, it turns out, “won the battle for sovereignty.”

Georgia recalls that there is a “day of Soviet occupation” on its calendar

Newspaper "Sight" quotes the Georgian prime minister:
Today is the day of the Soviet occupation. Our army, people's guards and volunteers showed heroism in a predetermined battle. That battle was lost, but the merit of those people and many other heroes is that the flag of Georgia flies over this building, we make sovereign decisions on our pro-Western course. For centuries, future generations will light the way an example of the heroes of those days. Georgia won the war for the preservation of sovereignty.

It should be recalled that on February 25, 1921, Red Army units entered Tbilisi. This very day was chosen as a "mournful date" in 2010 at the initiative of the then leader of Georgia, Mikhail Saakashvili. At the same time, Mr. Saakashvili, having initiated the inclusion of a new memorable date in the Georgian calendar, for some reason did not include the day of the Turkish occupation in it. But in vain ... After all, if it were not for the Red Army units, then today the "state" Georgia, at best for him, would exist within the framework historical regions of Turkey ... And where would the Georgian flag now fly and Kvirikashvili delivered his speeches, we can only guess.

        This is a famous photo. Georgia, 08.08.08. After the defeat of the Georgian army, its retreating units regrouped and decided to return to Gori, but stumbled upon a Russian checkpoint.

        The photo shows how a soldier of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation with a machine gun at the ready opposes the motorized infantry of the Georgian armed forces. The officers of the column threatened the machine-gunner so that he would leave the road and let them through, to which they heard in reply “Go ...” Then the media, who moved with the column, tried to talk to the machine-gunner. They received the same answer. As a result, the column turned around and moved back to where it came from. Foreign journalists later published an article entitled “Three hundred is not necessary, one is enough.”

            Georgia in the USSR is a privileged republic, practically unburdened by the State Planning Commission. The owners of all markets, with the connivance of the Ministry of Trade, are monopolists selling citrus fruits. The test question for a true Georgian is Green, paper, crunches, not money. The correct answer is 50 rubles. Against the background of material superiority over other peoples of the USSR, such national qualities as arrogance and arrogance developed in themselves. By the mid-80s, they had decided that they fed the entire union. It was precisely such sentiments that led to Georgian separatism.

      In general, I am wildly amazed by the "occupation" of Georgia, Ukraine and other "oppressed" by the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union. So, under the rule of the prisons of peoples, the population and the well-being of these regions grew, and after gaining independence, the standard of living immediately collapsed and a sharp decline in the population began.

        Not everyone. Some have already been appointed governors in the colonies.
        In general, the Western worldview does not have the concept of "people", there is the concept of "population", in the sense of "livestock", in the sense of "rams". Examples of nano-independent confirms, in general, this fact.

    A few years ago,

    Embraced, as if two sisters,
    Jets of Aragva and Kura,
    There was a monastery. Because of the mountain
    And now the pedestrian sees
    The pillars of the collapsed gate,
    And the tower, and church vault;
    But do not smoke too under it
    Incense burners,
    Can't hear the late hour singing
    Praying monks for us.
    Now one old man is gray,
    Ruins half-dead guard,
    People and death are forgotten,
    Sweeps dust from gravestones,
    Which the inscription says
    About the glory of the past - and that
    How depressed his crown,
    Such a king, in a certain year,
    I handed Russia my people.

    And God's grace descended on Georgia ...

      And when Georgia came under the protection of the Russian Empire.

      In 1783, a St. George Treaty was concluded between Russia and Georgia, according to which Russia pledged to defend Georgia in case of war, during negotiations, insist on the return of the possessions of Kartli and Kakheti conquered by Turkey. However, only three years later, in 1786, Heraclius II made a separate peace with the ruler of Turkey, Selim III. In 1794, the power in Iran was seized by the Aga-Mohammed Khan, the son of the leader of the Turkic Khajar tribe. In 1795, he attacked Georgia and ravaged Tiflis. For five days, the Persians outraged the city. Of the 60 thousand inhabitants, only 5,5 thousand remained; most of the population was driven into captivity. Then Tsar Irakli II again turned to the Russian Empire for help. In 1796, Catherine II sent an expeditionary force to Persia under the leadership of General-General Chef Valerian Zubov .... George XII again turned to Russia for help. He asked Emperor Paul I to accept Kartli and Kakheti into Russian citizenship and give protection from Turks and Persians. On November 18, 1800, Paul I signed a manifesto on Georgia’s annexation to Russia. On September 12, 1801, Emperor Alexander I published a manifesto on the entry of Georgia into Russia without the right of state autonomy and the Kartli-Kakheti kingdom was transformed into the province of Tiflis. In Transcaucasia, a sharp political struggle broke out between Muslim khans and Georgian rulers, who had to choose between Russia and Persia. Georgia’s annexation also aggravated relations between Russia and Persia, which claimed these territories, which resulted in the war of 1804-1813. During this war, the Russian Empire annexed the principalities of Western Georgia.

    And now these "sovereign states", having betrayed Russia and forgetting about everything that was done for them, and where they would be without such help, at the command of their masters, are splashing saliva, shouting how they were "occupied" and "oppressed."

    They prefer not to remember this ...
    Georgia voluntarily became part of the Russian Empire on January 18, 1801.
    Then, it did not include Abkhazia or South Ossetia. And it could not be, because Ossetia became part of the Russian Empire earlier than Georgia in 1774. Abkhazia, from 1864 to 1918, was directly controlled by the Russian administration and was also not part of Georgia.
    In accordance with international law, Georgia could create an independent state only with the territory with which it once belonged to Tsarist Russia.
    The Russian Empire, by its grace, accepted Georgia into its composition. Known that when the Georgian king Alexander in 1586 year asked the Russian Tsar Fedor to accept Georgia under Russian citizenship, then there were no more than 40 thousand Georgians. Orthodox churches and shrines of Georgia were destroyed and desecrated, the country was completely ruined.
    After Georgia vowed allegiance to the Russian Empire, Russia made a commitment to defend Georgia and immediately confirmed this by threatening Persia with war.
    In addition, assistance was also provided in the restoration of Georgian churches and Orthodox shrines. That is, having accepted Georgia into its membership in 1801, Russia assumed a huge burden and additional responsibility. Therefore, the Russian emperors, including Paul I, despite numerous requests and literally pleas of Georgia, did not dare to meet them. In 1798, George XII, who ascended the Georgian throne, begging Paul I for the annexation of Georgia, received his last refusal. The son of Paul, Emperor Alexander I, nevertheless made a positive decision.
    November 17, 1800 - Tsar George XII addressed the emperor of Russia with a “petition on his knees” in which he asked to accept his people into “eternal citizenship”.

    I can't understand how many "friends" Russia has and where
    this scum comes out, probably from all rubbish bins of the EU and the USA.

    All these conversations about the occupation speak only about one thing: the people or countries that conduct such conversations simply cheated specifically that the treatment is only one - cutting off the head.

    The "snub-nosed" is clearly beguiled something. If only they knew the history of their country for a start, and only then such dates were set in the calendar. fool

    These monkeys are all funny - European crying and black in America. Like, everyone once offended us. Once offended - it means they themselves allowed you to offend someone. He who does not allow himself to be offended is not offended!

    question to the Armenian radio: which city is the most beautiful, and how many bombs do you need to destroy it? Answer - Yerevan is a very beautiful city, but Tbilisi is better. Georgians, as little playful brothers, we love them very much and often forgive all their pranks, even the Armenian president.

    (Georgia won the war to maintain sovereignty.)

    A couple more such "victories" and the name "Georgia" will disappear on the world map. bully

    The photo shows how a soldier of the Armed Forces of the Russian Federation with a machine gun at the ready

    This photo of a brave "Buryat" is one of the most pretentious fakes from the divanpatriot's store!
    -I am sure that others saw the same thing not in cropped form, where the equipment and the rest of the "Buryats" will be on the left

    If we consider only Georgia, then yes. Georgians would be extinct by now.
    But without it, we would not have had the Krasnodar Territory and the Stavropol Territory.

    This is what a fright ??????
