The author emphasized that the focus of his work was on the process of space construction, which in his opinion included two main parts: the construction of the concept of the Ukrainian national space and spread of the concept of the Ukranian national space in various social layers.

Yana Kitaeva. The Diaries of Teimuraz G. Stepanov-Mamaladze
Today we cannot even imagine the fall of the Berlin Wall, the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, the end of the Cold War without a Hollywood smile of Eduard Shevardnadze. This "new man" in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs was the main moving force behind the dramatic change of the Soviet foreign policy. Not everyone knows that during his work in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs Edward Shevardnadze had a personal aide and speechwriter Teimuraz G. Stepanov-Mamaladze. Stepanov-Mamaladze kept detailed diaries describing everything that happened to him and his boss from 1985 to 1991. In these diaries the aide gave a personal description of high diplomatic meetings and reproduced conversations with his boss that happened behind the closed doors of diplomatic venues. He also describes Shevarnadze’s relationship with M. Gorbachev and other political leaders from around the world. The diaries open the window on the central question of the history of Perestroika: how “new people” in the Communist party and Soviet government overcame the routine of the Soviet bureaucracy and changed the political course of a super-power.
