About Nestor Lakoba in brief
Nestor Apollonovich Lakoba was a communist leader in Abkhazia. Lakoba helped establish Bolshevik power in the aftermath of the Russian Revolution. He was poisoned by Lavrentiy Beria, who was in charge of the Transcaucasian Socialist Federative Soviet Republic, which included Georgia. Rehabilitated after the death of Stalin in 1953, Lakoba is now revered as a national hero in AbKhazia and is considered a hero by many in the region. He is buried in the village of Lykhny, in what was then the Sukhum Okrug of the Kutais Governorate in the Russian Empire. He had two brothers, Vasily and Mikhail. His father Apollo died three months before his birth; Mikhail Bgazhba, who would serve as the First Secretary of Abkh Kazia, wrote that Apollo Lakoba had been shot for opposing the nobles and landowners in the area. He would be jokingly referred to as the \”Deaf One\” by Joseph Stalin. He went on to establish a peasant brigade that would later help consolidate Bolshevik control in Ab Khazia when the Bolsheviks were centered on Sukhumi. On February 16, 1918 Lakoba and Efrem Eremfrem founded the peasant brigade of Gudauta in the north of the region, which would later become known as the Eremkhan Brigade. He died of a heart attack on February 17, 1937. He left Abkhozia in 1938. He has been remembered as one of the most important figures in the history of the Soviet Union, and is a major figure in the Caucasus region of Georgia.
He also served as a member of the Provisional Government of Georgia, which was formed in the wake of the 1917 February Revolution, and was the first president of the Georgian Soviet Socialist Republic. In the 1990s he was elected to the A.S.R. A.E. which was created to govern the region and was elected as a representative of the people of A. S. R. The region is now a part of the Caucasus Autonomous Soviet Republic (ASR) Lakoba’s reputation as an ideal representative made him an ideal choice as representative for the region in the early 1950s. He later died in a car crash in the city of Tbilisi in 1988, aged 80. He never married and is survived by his wife and two children. He wrote a book about his experiences in the First World War, which has been translated into several languages, including Russian, English, and English-speaking Chinese. He worked as a teacher in Batumi, then a major port for exporting oil from the Caucasus, where he taught privately and studied for the gymnasium exam. In 1911 he was expelled from the seminary for revolutionary activity and moved to Batumi. He became involved with disseminating propaganda amongst the workers and peasants in thecity and throughout Adjara, the local region, and began to refine his ability to relate to the masses. In September 1912 he officially joined them.
