For the last few months Afghanistan was pushed to the background of world news reports, mostly because it was overshadowed by the events in the Middle East. But NATO-led military operation still continues, people are dying there every day and coalition forces seem to be far from achieving their officially declared goals. Oleg Kulakov, a retired colonel, served in the Soviet War in Afghanistan and is now a professor of the Military University in an interview with the chief editor of RussiaProfile.org Andrei Zolotov, Jr. expresses deep doubts about the possibility of a successful end to the current operation in Afghanistan.
