Gennady-Nikmamat, a former Soviet soldier: The Last in Afghanistan…

What a wonderful video!

This is the unique story of Gennady-Nikmamat, a former Soviet soldier who was captured by the Mujahideen during the Soviet war in Afghanistan. He was presumed a traitor, which carried a criminal penalty if he ever returned to his homeland. Thus he had no choice but to stay in Afghanistan and adopt a Muslim way of life…

Gennady-Nikmamat married an Afghan woman, had four kids with her and has lived a full life, but the thought of returning home one day never abandoned him. After finally coming back to Ukraine to see his relatives and visit his parents’ graves for the first time, he still can’t decide for himself whether it was better that he survive or if he should have ended up just another unknown soldier lost in the turmoil of war…

    Sorry the information seems to be well guarded! He tries to stay out of the limelight, so to speak. He came forward for a brief time in 2012 and I believe that he has since gone back to Afghanistan to be with his family. As he should do. They have stuck by him through thick and thin…

    Sorry I can not help…
