93 years since Georgia`s invasion by Red Army

25.02.14 10:33

February 25th is one of the most tragic days in the history of Georgia -  the invasion of Georgia by the Red Army in 1921.

National flags have been half lowered at the state buildings throughout the country. 93 years have been passed since the tragic page of the nation`s history.

A number of events have been planned to take place all day long to commemorate the Georgian soldiers who died for their country`s freedom in the war against the Red Army. President of Georgia and the members of the government will pay tribute to the memory of Georgian Cadets in Kojori memorial today.

On the night of 11/12 February 1921, at Ordzhonikidze`s instigation, Bolsheviks attacked local Georgian military posts in the ethnic Armenian district of Lorri and the nearby village of Shulaveri, near the Armenian and Azerbaijani borders.

The 11th Red Army occupied Tbilisi. 25 February 1921By 17 February Soviet infantry and cavalry divisions supported by aircraft were less than 15 kilometers northeast of Tbilisi. The Georgian army put up a stubborn fight in defense of the approaches to the capital, which they held for a week in the face of overwhelming Red Army superiority.

30 Cadets died in the last fight for independence in 1921 in Georgia. Cadets were buried near the military church, which was situated on the territory of the parliament in the first half of the past century. Along with them was also killed Maro Makashvili, the daughter of the head of the writers` union Kote Makashvili.

On July 21, 2010, Georgia declared February 25 Soviet Occupation Day to recall the Red Army invasion of Georgia in 1921.
