10 Soviet Mission In Afghanistan

Soviet Mission In Afghanistan

Posted on August 11, 2014 by team


Afghanistan has always been a key to Asia and in all times it was becoming a center of geopolitical interests of different empires. For centures they made attempts to conquer Afghanistan, they located communities and sent military advisers there. Thus, in 1979 it was the Soviet troops that entered the country. Pictures of that ten years lasting mission are presented below in the post.

      Well, if you are born and live on your Land
      you can’t be Invader … Can You?

      Only Bandera Pigs who came with Tanks,from Lviv and Kiev (800km far away) are Invaders and Occupiers!!!
      But People od Donetsk and Lugansk will get FREEDOM and INDEPENDENCE !
      Period.
