Chapter Summary

Between 1918 and 1921 Georgia was relatively successful in finding recognition by the international community. Georgia did have problems concerning its territorial integrity, there were disputes with Armenia and Azerbaijan. During this period Ajarians, South Ossetians and Abkhazians revolted against the government in Tiflis, trying to protect their own interests. Between 1920 and 1921, with the consent of the Allies, Russia reestablished its sphere of influence over the Transcaucasian territories, as had been the situation before the Revolution and in 1921 Georgia was incorporated in the RSFSR. After the Russian October Revolution, a Menshevik dominated National Council came to power on 22 November 1917, which was regarded as the principal organ of the Georgian nation.
