The authors' research is limited to the Georgian periodicals " Sakartvelo " and " Ertoba ". As it is known, in 1918-1921 there were two radically different opinions about the political, social or cultural future of the country. These positions were most clearly reflected in the print edition of the National Democratic Party, in the newspaper “Sakartvelo”, and in the print edition of the Social Democratic Party, in the newspaper “Ertoba”. In terms of identity priorities, it probably became one of the main reasons for the Sovietization of Georgia in 1921.
Analysis and evaluation of the tendencies, priorities, political, socio-cultural, linguistic policy, educational, economic visions of the main periodicals of the First Republic of Georgia, "Sakartvelo" and " Ertoba " will be the subject of detailed research for a long time to identify the reasons for the inevitability of historical or cultural events and draw the appropriate conclusions;
