Noe Zhordania, days before the Red Army’s invasion of Georgia in 1921

“What do we take to the culture box of European nations? 2,000 year-old national culture, democratic order and natural wealth.

Soviet Russia offered us military union, but we refused. Our ways split; they go towards the east, we towards west.

We wish to call up the Russian Bolsheviks: turn your face towards the west, become a modern European nation!”

Speech by Noe Zhordania, on January 27, 1921 at the extraordinary sitting of parliament, days before the Red Army invaded Georgia.
