The Kavkazskii rabochii promoted Leninist ideas, fought for the implementation of the resolutions of the Seventh (April) All-Russian Conference and the Sixth Congress of the RSDLP (Bolshevik), and conducted a resolute struggle for the establishment of Soviet power and against the Transcaucasian counterrevolutionary government, the Mensheviks, and the Socialist Revolutionaries.
