A skull taken from a school which sheltered rebels amuses Russian special forces. For two weeks the photographer accompanied these special infiltration and intelligence forces on their mission. Using night-glasses to see in the dark, they occupied strategic positions behind enemy lines. Villages were raided for food and subsequently burnt down.
