KavROSTA was founded around 1920 as a department of ROSTA (Russian Telegraph Agency) that had been created in 1918. While the main office of KavROSTA was located in Tbilisi, Georgia, it had satellite offices throughout the Caucasus. In 1925, with the creation of the Telegraph Agency of the USSR (TASS), KavROSTA lost much of its wider-serving news operations as it became subservient to TASS.
