They were honestly pulling a soldier's strap: participants in a rally in Tskhinval about the Afghans

A rally dedicated to the 31st anniversary of the withdrawal of the Soviet troops from Afghanistan was held in Tskhinval in front of a monument to internationalist soldiers in the Bam microdistrict. Participants in the event laid flowers and wreaths at the memorial, honoring the memory of the Afghans who did not return from the battlefield.

Murat Guchmazov, a Chairman of the Union of Afghanistan Veterans, noted that "the Afghan war lasted for almost 10 years, through which more than 620 thousand soldiers and officers went through, of which 15 thousand did not return home."
