Abstract

This article studies the disagreements in the leadership of the Azerbaijan SSR in the 1920s and the effect of these contradictions on the political and economic life of the republic. The research material is historical documents and historical and theoretical literature. The research topic is relevant, as it provides undeniable historical facts about the territorial integrity of Azerbaijan. For the first time, the article analyzes the historical events of those times from the point of view of modern historical events they are interconnected with. It also examines the status of the Azerbaijani language in such a difficult historical period. In the course of the research, the historical-descriptive method and the method of historical analysis were used. As a result of the study, it was revealed that in 1920 intra-government disagreements and disputes began with the creation of the Soviet government between nationalist-minded forces and the Bolshevik forces of Armenian origin emissaries of Moscow. This strife ended in the defeat of the Azerbaijani national communists due to the unequal distribution of forces. Thus, the Central Bolshevik government and its Baku emissaries of non-Azerbaijani origin removed the obstacles that contradicted their policy in Azerbaijan and began to implement in full force the chauvinist national policy under the veil of international philosophy. Summing up, the author points out the causes of strife and disagreement among the authorities of Azerbaijan in the 1920s. He notes that these reasons were negligence and disrespect for sovereignty and territorial integrity, wealth, language, religion and national traditions, peasants and intellectuals of Azerbaijan. This attitude was also observed in the field of economic issues. This study's presented materials and conclusions can be useful for historians and further research in this direction.
