A few days ago in our country and throughout the post-Soviet space, they recalled the next anniversary of the withdrawal of Soviet troops from Afghanistan. So far, the withdrawal of the Soviet contingent has caused heated debate. According to some - this is proof of defeat in that war, according to others - the only right decision at that time and a brilliantly conducted operation.
Hero of the Soviet Union, retired Colonel General Boris Gromov, shares his revelations on this subject. It was he who in 1989 led the operation to withdraw Soviet troops from Afghanistan. This includes the famous passage through the Salang Pass, which ended without loss.
Revelations of General Gromov are presented on the channel "Sweet +".

According to Boris Gromov, he was overwhelmed with emotions when the Soviet contingent left Afghanistan.
The full version of the revelations of Gromov is in the video of Alexander Sladkov:
