From the finding aid to the Shevardnadze interview transcripts.

The weekly radio interviews of Ėduard Shevardnadze, president of Georgia, during his last years in office are now available at the Hoover Archives. In these interviews Shevardnadze discusses the foreign policy of Georgia, especially relations with the United States and Russia; his trips to foreign countries and various districts of Georgia; visits of foreign statesmen and public figures to Georgia; and recent political, cultural, and social events.

The collection consists of transcripts of interviews and related preparation materials from September 2002 to November 2003, when Shevardnadze resigned. The entire collection, which has been digitized, is available in the Hoover Archives reading room. A detailed Russian finding aid briefly describes each of the seventy interviews.
