After the three republics (Armenia, Azerbaidjan, and Georgia) had been conquered by the Red Army, a Transcaucasian Socialist Federal Soviet Republic was formed in 1922, becoming a Union Republic of the USSR in the same year. In 1936 this republic was abolished and Armenia, Azerbaidjan, and Georgia were established as Union Republics.
