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.

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.
