What was Pakistan’s role in breaking the Soviet Union?

  1. Pakistan provided sanctuary for the mujahideen fighters.
  2. Pakistan trained around 100,000 Afghans to fight the Soviet Union.
  3. Pakistan provided intelligence to the mujahideen fighters.
  4. Pakistan provided weapons the mujahideen fighters
  5. Weapons from the USA and Gulf states were funnelled through Pakistan.
  6. According to some Afghan sources EVERY Mujahideen unit had at the very least 1 Pakistani instructor.
  7. Pakistani commandos (SSG) participated in many battles especially against the spetznaz who were highly trained and would have caused a lot of casualties had they fought the Afghan mujahideen.
  8. Regular Pakistani soldiers fought in mujahideen ranks.
  9. Many civilian men from all across Pakistan fought alongside the mujahideen as they saw it as a holy war against the atheist communists who were invading a neighbouring muslim country with the intention of possibly invading Pakistan at a later time.
  10. It is reported that the Pakistani Air Force shot down around 6–8 Russian fighter jets whilst losing 0 in the process.

It is safe to say that without Pakistans huge contributions to the Afghan-Soviet war the outcome could have been quite a lot different, Germany recognised Pakistans role in the defeat of the Soviet union and sent Pakistan the 1st brick of the Berlin war and other gifts as a thank you. The Afghan taliban till this day is loyal to Pakistan as it recognises the help that Pakistan gave to them in their war against the Soviet Union.
