In the article the author discusses the tradition of the anti-Georgian annexationist policy of Russia, the Tsarist, Bolshevist-Soviet and post-Soviet. He argues that with respect to Georgia, there never were, and evidently never will be two Russias – “good” and “bad.” Russia, whether Tsarist (1783-1917), Bolshevist-Soviet (1921-1991) or post-Soviet (1991- up to date) was always consistent in its political aspirations with regards to Georgia and the Caucasus, changing only its outer “shell” but not the essence. The article discusses also the fatal mistakes committed by the political leaders of Georgia in 1783, 1920-1921 and 1992-1995.
