    GIORGI GOGOLASHVILI
    ILIA CHAVCHAVADZE AND IAKOB GOGEBASHVILI

    Ilia Chavchavadze and Iakob Gogebashvili were outstanding Georgian public figures of the 19th century. The article focuses on their relationship with one another. With Georgian national interests in mind, they stood side by side; defended each other's positions and jointly fought against the enemies of Georgian affairs. Their relationship was an example of how public figures can and should cooperate and handle national causes.

     

    ANZOR TOTADZE
    THE POPULATION OF TBILISI IN 1226

    It has been difficult to determine the precise population of Tbilisi during certain periods of history. In fact, there is no reliable data until the 19th century. Only by analyzing multiple sources and comparison of various numerical criteria, it is possible to makea somewhat reliable conclusion. Utilizing Georgian historical science,it is believed the population of Tbilisi was approximately 100‑thousand people in 1226. The number is based on the execution of 100 thousand people during the capture of Tbilisi by Jalal ad-Din Mingburnu. The author analyzed indirect evidence and Georgian and foreign historical documents and concluded that in 1226, the capital of 8 million Georgia, Tbilisi was inhabited by about 150 thousand people.

     

    GRIGOL RUKHADZE
    NATIONAL EVENTS REVIEW

    The author of this article reviews the political, social and public affairs of Georgia: the Association Agreement, an initiative of  collaborationist Nationals, a new frame of the Ukrainian government, Sakdrisi mine, the statement of the President of Russia and the press conference the Prime Minister.

     

    BORIS DARCHIA
    SCIENCE AND INTEGRITY

    The article criticizes a book authored by Rostom Chkheidze “Vakhtang Saga, The Chronicles of Vakhtang Chelidze” published in 2014. The book mentions our famous scientists Alexandre Baramidze and Givi Mikadze with mockery and disrespect. The article demonstrates that this kind of attitude towards the well-deserved personalities is unfounded and unfair.

     

    GULBAAT RTSKHILADZE
    2014 SURVEY: GEORGIAN PEOPLE’S POSITION REGARDING NATO
    AND UNITED STATES

    In 2014, the Eurasia Institute conducted a study in Georgia to gage the public’s perception on NATO and the United States. The results of the survey showed the Georgian peoples' viewpoints vary greatly. The Eurasia Institute concluded that at the given time if a plebiscite were to be held in Georgia only 32 percent would support Georgia's accession to NATO.

     

    IOSEB ARCHVADZE
    DOCTOR OF ECONOMIC SCIENCES, STATISTICIAN
    Political Orientation of Georgian Population

    The author analyzes the results of a poll, conducted by the Eurasia Institute to gage public perception on NATO and the United States. The survey results showed that Georgian people’s viewpoints vary, and if plebiscite were to be held on accession of Georgia in NATO, only 32 % wouldbe in favor of it.  J. Archvadze praised the level of the survey. In his article he stated: "I reviewed the results of the survey of the Georgian people's position towards NATO and the United States, conducted by the Institute of Eurasia  with great interest just a few weeks ago (November 2014). This poll is not an ordinary conjunctural analysis, to which so much attention is paid by today’s media. This survey is rather resonant and even crucial for our country's problems. I want to highlight high, academic level of the study, which involves the high and correct sampling of respondents. 1,781 respondents are sufficient to produce credible and reliable results. For comparison, I would say that this figure represents 52% of the respondents (total 3350 households) that are normally selected for the research of household income and expenditure analysis in various regions of Georgia. The respondents are required to fill out multiple questionnaires and forms. So, the results of the research have a high legitimacy. With this in mind, the survey results can be considered as a moral counterweight of the plebiscite that was held the same time as the presidential elections in 2008. Then, during the final count the results somehow jumped up to four times the percentage of the population who supported integration into NATO.  The survey sample reflects the gender ratio (in the survey-male/female: 48.5/51.5%, Georgia's population  47.7/52.3%) almost with “ ballistic accuracy”.  Also there is an exact match between the age distribution of respondents and population of Georgia ".

     

    VALERIAN DOLIDZE
    MAIDAN AND THE PROSPECT OF UKRAINIAN SCENARIO
    IN THE COUNTRIES OF THE SOUTH CAUCASUS

    The author attempts to answer a question: Is it possible to carry out the Ukrainian scenario in Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan? The author compares the political functions of the South Caucasian republics with Ukraine and comes to a conclusion. He states that in Georgia, Armenia and Azerbaijan there are no necessary and sufficient conditions for a repeat of Maidan.

     

    MARUT VARDAZARYAN
    CRISIS IN UKRAINE AND ARMENIAN AND GEORGIAN RELATIONSHIPS

    The author analyses the status of Armenian-Georgian relations. He reviews the prospects for these relations with the consideration of the crisis in Ukraine and global processes associated with it. The author comes to the following conclusion: 1. Transition of post-Soviet states with their internal problems into the international competition could lead to chaos (in Ukraine "Eastern Partnership" with the EU triggered this). No country should be faced with the type of hard choice. 2. Events in Ukraine demonstrated the shortcomings of EU's policy in the post-Soviet space. An Association Agreement with the EU does not imply a perspective of EU membership. Considering these issues, Brussels repeatedly stated, that no country of Southern Caucasus had a perspective of becoming EU member. Even Georgia, which is considered to be the most pro-Western country in the Caucasian region, was unable to add a paragraph on the possibility of becoming a member state of the EU during the Association Agreement negotiations in 2011. In the case of Armenia, comprehensive Free Trade Zone prospects are not promising. The requirement to enter the European market is to be able to produce European standard competitive products that Armenia is not able to do. From the political aspect, Armenia’s choice is due to a desire to ensure its security because in contrast to the neighboring countries, the regional geopolitical situation effects Armenia more due to closed borders.
    Armenia and Georgia should consider the implications of recent events. The cooperation between the two brotherly countries is the order of the day. It is dictated by the latest geopolitical and civilization processes.
