Shadows of an Afghan War (HDR)

Yesterday, February 15 2011, was the 22nd anniversary of the end of the Soviet-Afghan War. The total duration of the war was 9 years, 50 days. The photo is from yesterday's anniversary in Kiev, Ukraine. The duration of the US Afghan War, so far, is 9 years, 131 days, if my calculations are correct.

Ukraine was a part of the Soviet Union up until August 1991, when they declared independence.

Temperature at the beginning of the ceremony ~ approximately 4F/-14C.
