As part of its series on veterans from some of the world's most brutal and forgotten conflicts Al Jazeera travelled to Russia.

Despite being the Soviet Union's largest military operation since the second world war, the decade-long war in Afghanistan is regarded by many as a humiliation and the Soviet 'Vietnam'.

However many veterans are still physically and psychologically damaged by their time in Afghanistan and say they do not receive adequate support upon their return.
