In 1783, Eastern Georgia (Kartli-Kakheti kingdom) and the Russian state signed an alliance agreement – the Treaty of Georgievsk. The topic is quite voluminous and is as controversial as possible. The way the Russian and Georgian sides understand the situation with the signing of the treaty is in fact mutually exclusive.

The consequences of this union will be shown: on what basis the Georgian lands became part of the Russian state, as well as the main myths and legends associated with these events that to this day persist in the Russian society.
