1989 Russian Troop Withdrawal

Last night I was speaking to one of my old bosses who happened to be on of the Russian/Czech translators in the negotiations of the Russian Generals, the Czech Generals and some Americans regarding the withdrawal of all Russian troops during the 1989 Velvet Revolution.

He said that while he was not really needed to interpret (since most Czech Generals spoke Russian) he found it incredibly interesting to be hanging out with these superpower armies.

"And the party after negotiations was.. ... incredible!"
