Photos From The Soviet Occupation Of Afghanistan.

by Daniel Russ on March 29, 2013

I found this great cache of photos from http://englishrussia.com, a website that has a n eclectic assortment of articles on Russian life and culture. This one post had photos taken of the Russian occupation of Afghanistan. There is a man in many of the photos who looks like a civilian contractor, not unlike a CIA agent traveling with an Afghan army unit, dressed in civies, sunglasses, poker face. They are a moment in time when the Russians thought they could tame Afghanistan.
