      And what are we celebrating? Losing influence in Asia? 40 times the flow of drugs from Afghanistan to us? Now they kill more young children in a year than all of Afghanistan in 18 years. You do not understand, this is a monument not to soldiers (which of course deserve a monument), but to the fact of the withdrawal of troops. Scoto will erect a monument to the collapse of the USSR, if so continued sad

    It is a pity that all the work was not posted. It was possible to conduct a small vote on the site.
    Boys have eternal memory, sleep peacefully!

    The soldiers honestly fulfilled their duty to the Fatherland and at the same time did not cover their weapons with senselessly spilled blood, deserve to remain in the history of their country.

    Any empire will sooner or later plunge into a protracted war. Such are the historical laws! The soldier is sorry. The first to send the sons of those who made decisions to the war.

    an incomprehensible war, which lasted 10 years, which claimed 15 thousand lives, crippled tens of thousands of people. But a monument is needed, because soldiers and officers gave their lives, obeying orders.
