Bitter memory of Soviet military adventures
24 June 2019 | by lopuhov-74245See all my reviews

This film, like Chernobyl, is the truth about what the Soviet Union is. Human life is worth nothing. What kind of ephemeral goals, thousands of human losses, for the sake of influence. This movie is true. Requiem for tens of thousands of people who died in Afghanistan, from 15 republics of the former union. A meaningless adventure. Bravo Lungin! And the fact that this film is scolded in modern Russia, Putin's Russia, says that it should be watched!
