On Tuesday, Frantz Klintsevich, deputy head of the RF Gosduma Defence Committee said that a memorial commemorating Soviet soldiers who died in conflicts around the world during the Cold War era will be built in Victory Park (Park Pobedy) in Moscow. The memorial will form an architectural ensemble around an existing monument honouring Soviet soldiers who died during the Soviet war in Afghanistan (1979-89). He said, “It’ll be a beautiful composition with sculptures and bas-reliefs depicting certain historical events”. Stone tablets with the names of about 10,000 Soviet soldiers who fell in hotspots all over the world will line the alley leading to the memorial. Klintsevich said that plans call for completing the monument by summer, noting, “We’ll start preliminary excavation in the near future, probably in March. We’ve already begun engraving the names on the memorial tablets”. According to official statistics, the USSR was in over 30 conflicts in some 29 countries; besides Afghanistan, Soviet troops fought in Angola (and here), Ethiopia, Yemen, and Nigeria. Some 15,000 Soviet troops died in Afghanistan alone, before the Soviet withdrawal in February 1989.

Editor’s Note:

America has no one to blame but themselves for the al-Qaeda militants. Because of the sick, all-absorbing, and twisted Russophobic hatred of Zbigniew Brzeziński, the USA aided the most feral Islamist elements in the Soviet-Afghan War. Zbig was the “godfather” of al-Qaeda… he thought that any anti-Russian group was good. Such evil elements helped to deform American élite opinion on the USSR (and, later, Russia). Should I also mention that Joe Biden‘s mentor was a pro-Ustaša Croat Catholic priest? You can see why the Orthosphere gets fucked by the American media, government, and One Percent. It’s our God-given duty to stand against this demonic shit. Thank God, I’m NOT alone…
