  • Border Disruption,
  • Russian-Speaking Writers of Georgia,
  • Cultural Identity


The political changes of the last century led to a strong migration wave, and now Russian-speaking writers of Georgia live in different parts of the world. They joined other Russian-speaking writers from different countries and together created a new cultural community of Russian speaking writers. It is this that makes it difficult to identify their cultural identity.

The letter is separated to identify the main markers and justify need for their use in determining the cultural identity of Russian-speaking writers in Georgia; classify abundance of existing texts, divide them into conceptual groups and reveal their mental traits.
