“Was not able to leave them”

In dedication to the 27th anniversary of withdrawal of the Soviet troops from Afghanistan the Mogilev state technology college held a thematic meeting “Afghanistan is our pain”.

The college invited Vasily Triputen, a former deputy head of the regional internal affairs office, and Vladimir Sergeyev, a former student of the establishment. They both took part in the Afghan war. Their memories about the war became the most precious part of the event. 

Vasily Triputen says that the memories are always tough. It is impossible to forget those who died during the war. In 1986-1987His Army service was in the province of Helmand which witnessed the most active fighting.  Vasily Triputen gave an example of a courage display.  

When a helicopter was shot down and 14 soldiers had to jump from the height of 100 meters. All of them died. The captain of the helicopter refused to leave the craft even though there were two parachutes on board.  He could not leave the dying soldiers.

Vasily Triputen thanked the students for the memory of the war and internationalist-soldiers.
