Exactly 25 years ago, the night from 26 to 27 December 1979 the first aircrafts with Soviet troops on board landed in the airport of Kabul. The war in Afghanistan, which lasted 9 years and cost almost 15 thousand lives of soldiers and officers started. Nobody can say how many lives of Afghan people it cost.
Who and how took the decision in our country on bringing of our troops to Afghanistan? Why the first victim of our soldiers was Faizula Amin, the Afghan Leader, who actually has called for the Soviet Army to protect revolution and the revolutionary government? A Genrich Borovik film “The Last War of the Empire” answers these questions.
