    An experience precedent to that of USA, but similar on finality.
    It is the reasoment made by Andrey Avetisyan.
    His exam, development of situation and invitation to support Afghan people on all istances have a ratio and appear on the logic of the transition phase an its prosecution.
    An immediate pull out may vanify years of war against terror, right’s and dignity’s deprivation of Afghan people, return to condition of non live.
    A support must be done to Afghan forces and Afghan people to avoid a “pristinus status of situation” by taliban.
