    Thank you for the answer.

    Maybe they had an interpreter who spoke Albanian? What with being in Kosovo and all...or the international language of gestures came into play. You can see it whichever way you like though.

    Good on the VDV.

That period the Russians were trying to provoke the KLA by going around and trying to arrest some big shots.
    Other "macho man" move was also the blocking of the Pristina airport.
    And yet life can be stranger than fiction at times. Don't you think?

    Great story though but IMO they were too nice to KLA

    In addition to all the above said...
    Albania was a part of Socialist block and as in every country of Eastern Europe, Russian language was a primary one as a foreign language to learn.

    How do we all communicate here, while we are from dozens of different countries?

    This is way to off-topic ...
    What Albania has to do with Yugoslav curriculum? Don't confuse apples with oranges.

    Nope . We weren't in a good relation or bad relation , we weren't in relation at all. Self-imposed isolation is the term.

    The Socialist Block of Eastern European countries (and Warsaw Pact) consisted of 8 countries. Poland, Czechoslovakia, Yugoslavia, Romania, Bulgaria, Hungary, GDR and ...*drums*... Albania!

    I had an "A" in Geography 20 years ago!

    Last post since this is Russian photos after all.

    With your first post you clearly failed in your geography exams.
    Your history is outdated as well since Albania left the Warsaw Pact in 1961 and imposed self-isolation cutting ties with everybody.

    Only that I was speaking about Socialist Block of countries and mentioned WP later. Getting out WP, it still remained in block of Eastern European countries (by a political definition). All countries had some certain degree of independence. Some less, some more. Self-isolating didn't make Albania neither totally independent, neither it passed to Western sphere of influence. Maybe, of course, the subject was taught in Albania itself kinda differently from the rest of the World, counting it as 1 of 8 Socialist block countries.

    Good night everyone.
