Georgia: After Communist Rule
Country Study > Chapter 1 > Historical Background > After Communist Rule

AFTER COMMUNIST RULE


In Georgia Gorbachev's simultaneous policies of glasnost and continued control energized the forces of nationalism, which pushed the republic out of the central state before the Soviet Union fell apart. The first years of independence were marked by struggle among Georgians for control of the government and by conflict with ethnic minorities seeking to escape the control of Tbilisi.
