The Soviet Withdrawal | Kabul Transit

A segment from the film Kabul Transit that looks at art and culture in the context of the Soviet withdrawal in February 1989.

“Afghanistan taught us an invaluable lesson . . . It has been and always will be impossible to solve political problems using force. We should have helped the people of Afghanistan in improving their life, but it was a gross mistake to send troops into the country.”

Retired Red Army General Boris Gromov.
