Afghantsi is a 1988 documentary film directed by Peter Kosminsky for Yorkshire Television.
It is based on numerous interviews with Soviet soldiers and officers filmed in Kabul at the end of the Soviet war in Afghanistan.
Kosminsky visited several units of the 103rd Airborne Division, including an outpost on a mountain side overlooking Tajbeg Palace, the headquarters of the 40th Army.
The heroes of the film speak about the hardships of service in Afghanistan, combat experience and the loss of close friends.
Another part of the film is devoted to interviews with veterans of the war that have already returned home, and parents of those who died.

Oops sorry for the linking, well the link was originally posted on a military board, so finding it on Google shouldn't be to hard (for those who want to still see it)

I watched Afghantsi when it was shown in the UK last summer and I thought it was pretty interesting. They also showed Peter Kosminsky's (the director) other Soviet documentary, which followed the Soviet police trying to solve the case of a woman murdered in her apartment. I haven't been able to find that one online though.

-- sorry if this isn't the right forum to be posting it in.

Good stuff. Except linking to it is against the rules.
Might wanna remove that link before the mods do.

EDIT: Thanks for the link though. I'm glad I got to it before they did.
