The Impact of The Cold War on Georgia By: Logan Brunner
There were many impacts of the cold war on Georgia including the people. In 2008 Russia and Georgia fought a 5-day war ending with 800 deaths. Many ethnic Georgian Villages were destroyed.
During the cold war Georgia wanted to be in NATO but the USSR would not allow that. Therefore starting a slight conflict between the two countries. Georgia wanted to be a more democratic country and after the cold war they did become one.
Can I join NATO please?
One other important part of the Russian Georgian conflict was over alliances. Georgia did not like being a Russian Satellite country. This meant that they needed to make friends with the western countries for help to get away from Russia.
Another part of the Georgian Russian conflict was over a bit of land. This piece of land is called North and South Ossetia and had many ethnic Georgian people living in it. But Russia and Georgia had many previous conflicts in this area.
After the conflict many people thought there was going to be another one. Many thought this because of the large Russian Population in Georgia and the alleged kidnappings along the border of south and North Ossetia
