|Kushka – the southernmost cross|
(2011, canvas, oil, 70 x 50 сm)
“...We won't be sent further than Kushka”. That is the second line of the popular army adage. The first line reported:"They won't give us less than a platoon". On the whole, it was about hard fate of the officer serving in the most southern garrison of the USSR. Kushkin's called it "the end of geography". At that time Kushka didn't look like a fortress as it has been for half a century. It was built on the southernmost point of Russia in the late XIX century and named after a little Afghan river. Over the ruins of fortifications, over the village streets there has towered a huge cross. The cross was built on the top of the highest hill in honor of the tercentenary of the reigning Romanov's House. On the front side of the cross, facing in Afghanistan, was forged a sword, pointing the Islamic Crescent. Inside there is placed a small chapel" (Mark Steinberg)
Notably, the only(!) railroad in Afghanistan is still from Kushka to Herat.
On February 15, 2014, the 25th anniversary of the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan, the picture has been available on a long-term exhibition at the Cultural Center of the St. Petersburg police department – Poltavskaya st,12 or in the Small Concert Hall on Kharkovskaya st, 9.
