Eleven: 1988

  • Mark Urban


As the year began, several Soviet officials dropped broad hints that 1988 would see the withdrawal of the Limited Contingent of Soviet Forces in Afghanistan. Eduard Shevardnadze, the Foreign Minister, said on 6 January: ‘We would like the year 1988 to be the last year of the Soviet troops stay’.1 This was followed by an article in Pravda which suggested that the pull out could start on 1st May.
