It's me, Comrade lieutenant.
What are you doing here, son?
Should stay home.
To draw them naked women or flowers in jardinieres.
You see, comrade lieutenant. Accordingly to dr. Freud Any painting is a sublimation of subconscious instincts.
Including the instinct of violence. But you can disagree with this.
Because Soviet science does not recognize the bourgeois doctrine of doctor Freud.
Sorry, l'll fix it, With your help, comrade lieutenant.
Rule No.1 Paratroopers should be always ready for a sudden attack.
Very good. Name.
Private Lutayev Rule No.2.
Brighter than a lieutenant ls only the first lieutenant Forget who you were and what you knew.
You ain't good and ain't bad here.
No bright nor stupid, Not even a painter. You are nothing.
You are not even humans. Here you are shit.
I'm the one who will make humans of you. Using these very hands.
I did not hear it.
Fill it up!
Comrade lieutenant , how come the first unit runs with light equipment.
Take your girl to the bushes. with light equipment.
Here,The more ammo you bring, the more chances to survive.
The mission is, Beat off the armed enemy.
Take the height, confirm your position and report me the situation.
Comrade lieutenant . The second unit is ready.
The preparation of the mission is done.
The mission failed You are all corps. You, you and you.
Cargo 200 in the black tulip.

The previous call up leaving in couple of days.
And we will stay here for three months.
If you get caught - it's your end.
Listen, Lutyi. Would you sleep with her after them fourty men been with her?
Me neither. It's better to die than eat from garbage cans.
Yeah? and l ate. I ate.
Have you ever been starving so bad , that you even can't sleep?
So shut the fuck up your hole!
Our dinner was three spoons of carpenters glue.
After eating that, we were wandering around the city Looking how you and your bitch sit there in a restaurant.

Shut up whelp ! First smell a woman. Then talk.

Who is Soviet paratrooper?
Soviet paratrooper Is the glory , power and pride of the military forces
Who is Soviet paratrooper?
Sovie paratrooper is the assurance of all units and people.
Who the hell are you?
We are the shame of all units and you personally.
Iisten, he is an idiot.
Nah. He's cool l don't get only one thing.
Why the first unit is always in the front?
Run with light equipment. And have an hour to sit and moke.
While we eat shit here.
We have done nothing bad.
Should be by turns. One time for them, one time for us.
Yes, it because their lieutenant is sane.
And ours Dygalo is an idiot Making his ranks on us, bitch No, he was hurt badly.
In the head He lost all of his men in Afghanistan He's the only one who survived.
He's been reassigned here
But he writes letters to the minister , wants to come back But with his head injury Who needs him there?

Finish him, Stas
Get up, when he falls down, you must finish him Only dead man won't shoot you in the back Sorry, Sparrow, forgive me Sparrow, good done
Looks like a plasticine Everybody touch it Touch it, feel it You see, it's soft It can take any form
looks like a harmless toy, that everyone of you had Every one of you molded, squirrels, rabbits But in a fact ,in your hands you hold a powerful weapon Plastic explosive Stas!
It has its chemical formula But we do not need to know this Plastid is irreplaceable It's a necessary item in equipement of every paratrooper The question, why
First, in this condition
It's absolutely safe, easy to store and always available As they say, in the hand But in war It is very efficient and has enormous destructive power But you've got to be skilled, for using it Warrior...
There are two simple rules
First ,the more you squeeze it, the more it blows Number two, don't stick it everywhere!
But by itself this thing won't work For it to blow we need what?
Detonator Exactly We need to insert detonator
Your name soldier?
Private Petrovsky You screwed, soldier l've got to report to your commander
Come in Comrade lieutenant, private Petrovsky Come in
Well molded, quite realistic
Can you paint?
I learned painting A portrait, kinds of big I could
I'm here..., The girl's writing...
We met before the war She wants my photo What am l gonna do? Send it with this?
Can you , like... Without it... more handsome?
Yes, just need some time, couple of days
I certainly won't go to see her after war
Just let her write for the meanwhile
Look Pissed his pants You laugh? My bed is under Sparrow's bed So what , birdy, do l need to sleep with umbrella now?
I don't get it, soldier Did you see something?
Nothing, Sir And you?
I misunderstood, sir Then tell me what's it all about !
I also wanna share you joy You can swallow your snots Can call your mama Piss your pants, but your mission Must be accomplished, Die but do it , and he did Turn back
Basic knowledge of your communication with locals You can get from this But The first thing, you should rember when you cross the border That you're in a muslim state
Islam it's not merely another religion It's another world which has its own laws Another approach to live and death
Muslim doesn't afraid to die fighting the infidel, in other words - us If he gets killed he goes straight to heaven
Where all he was missing in this life awaiting him there Water The fruits in the garden, beautiful maids
How Muslims treat women it's another topic
The most important holy thing for muslim is his house, Harram From which derived the word Harem The second meaning of it - "forbidden", "prohibited"
Looking at the muslim women is Harram Everything regarding sexual intercourse is Harram Harram to show a muslim indecent gestures Those you all are so used to them For this you can get a bullet even from a common peasant Another important thing, Muslim will never profane his house with blood
That means when you enter their village, you are their guests To kill a guest even an infidel - harram So, you must remember this one As long as you're in the villige, you are safe.
But after you crossed the borderline of the villige The same man, who's been drinking tea with you 5 minutes ago May shoot you in the back Because it is a glory to kill an infidel
It is a staircase to heaven.
I'm telling it for you, soldier Ah...
After all, Afghanistan is a multinational country.
Over 20 nations live there.
Tajiks Turkmen, Uzbeks Pushtuns live along the Pakistani border In the north, live Khazarss and Mongoloids
The word khazar means thousand in Turkic languages.
Am I boring you, soldier?
Comrade captain, Does it matter who you shoot?
During the whole history No one ever succeded to conquer Afghanistan
No one, ever
Squad, Get up What are we doing in Afghanistan?
Fulfilling our international incumbency, and help our Afghan brothers to resist the aggression of imperialism.
Private Ryabokon, done!
Private Chugainov, done!
Right down You pull the trigger too sharp Very dense, but too high Breath slowly.
Have you ever shot before?
No sir, I'm a painter, l have a very accurate eye Over here.
Ok Give him.
Private, Vorobyov Yes Put down the gun and come here.
Here. Put it there.
Oh, cool, Gioconda Cool!
Listen, Gioconda, tell me honestly.
Why did you come to Afghanistan?
You could sit at the headquarters and draw. They even offered you.
You won't understand So make it simple Simple?
Do you see the tank over there?
Beautiful, isn't it? What a power! and nothing otiose,not a bit
Weapons are the most beautiful!
The most beautiful thing the mankind created So what?
There was an artist named Michelangelo in the renaissance One day, someone asked him how he sculpts his works.
He said, very simple, l just take a rock and get rid of the otiose parts Understand? Beauty is something without anything otiose, Without any crap.
In the war, there is only life and death, nonting otiose War itself is a beauty.
Listen, Gioconda, l don't understand you Are you a fool or what?
What is so beautiful?
When the guts are twisted around the tank tracks?
You think it's a kids play?
I said you won't understand Fuck you, freak!
Stasenko, it is mine.
What day is today?
Sparrow, mine Lutaev, mine Suvorov, me!
Ryabokon That's it That's it?
My friends asked me out to disco.
But l will not go without you because l love you!

If to be honest, without any bullshit Scary Not all die...
If it happens fast, It's not that scary The worst thing if you get crippled When l was in Tashkent, l went to that hospital, and some soldiers were there The whole ward Each one occupies only half a bed ...
I knew a guy who came from the battlefield He is good, only his bladder is cut by splinter.
He got a pipe coming from his stomach, and a bag tied to a leg.
They call him bagpipes...
What's up with Sparrow ls he sleeping there or reading books?
Wait, l'm going to see You are bruts! Understand, animals!
You all are like animals, don't care with whom and where I can't do like this, You all are animals

You are very lucky, dumbass This gun is special You should feel proud, instead you're bitching here Comr... Solder! Sign here!
Turn left, move
Who was your former commander?
1st lieutenant Dygalo Sashka...
I thought he retired He slept there Been screaming whole night long, going to a combat ,no one could sleep Then they took him to the hospital To Tashkent l guess Aha Was a good guy, joyful, Used to laugh a lot He had some illness, hey doc, how'd you call it?
It is called contusion I thought you'd say something clever what a dickhead Oh , shut up!
Is that snow white girl still there?
Snow white's there
Say, painter Is this good?
More or less Some boy here made it by memory Listen, Hohol Pomidor - this son of a bitch, gave him broken Samylin's gun And the new one probably washed out and sold...
What? He trades weapons ?
Some die at war, and some make profits of it
Sir, l heard that we'll go to combat in two or three days, is that right?
Not a combat, but we go out, our mission is occupying a height
Hold the line of defence, protecting our convoys Is this all?
Yes, what you thought it's Stalingrad here?
He's so monumental, l'd make him a statue of bronze Kagraman What?
Kag - ra - man Dushmans call him so It means angry giant Our commander is the only one in the whole Afghanistan He's been nominated for hero three times But each timehe returns from a combat He beats shit out of some brass hat They don't take him to the martial court, though But he ain't getting his star .
Afanasyi, who are them?
These are the Green Afghanistani army, Darned Allies There is nothing worse than working with them When it gets tough a little, they run While you think they cover your flank, they're far behind Three kilometers away We got surrounded once because of them assholes Where the Dushman territory begins?
After the block station There they are They say - Russians are our friends and brothers But when the night falls dig out their guns And go Allah Akbar, and shit.
So do not haste to join this war,kids You'll get it anyway You probably already made a bet who kills a ghost first Of course Bet on what?
Marlboro pack I add another one Who was the first then, lieutenant?
Samylin, He killed the first ghost He also left first, in the zinc, What remained of him, The pieces we could gather
There they are ,savages The frontier guard We'll drop some ammo and food and go on
You gonna take it with you?
Of course And when it grows?
Take with me...

Can you hear me, son? Why the communication didn't work?
Why there's no connection? Can you hear me?
Afghanistan, Chaugani, February 9th 1989 We were leaving Afghanistan.
We, the 9th company. Have won our own war.
Back then, we hadn't known a lot of things We hadn't known, that two years later the country we had been fighting for will vanish.
And wearing the medals of non existing country will become unfashionable.
We hadn't known that Lieutenant Dygalo will stay in standing army.
And train recruits somewhere near Tula He will die of a stroke, a year later During a night march.
We hadn't known that Snow White with her mother and lots of other Russian families.
Will stay in the abandoned army city on the Afghani border and disappear.
And we ourselves will be scattered ruthlessly, by the new life.
Some to the top, and some to the very bottom.
Non of this we hadn't known then.
We even Hadn't known that we were simply forgotten in the bustle of the huge army's withdraw On that remote height.
We were leaving Afghanistan...
The 9th company We, we won.
This film is based on real events That took place on January 8th, 1988 In Houst province, height 3234
