The 9th Company (Russian: 9 Рота) is a 2005 Russian film directed by Fedor Bondarchuk and set during the Soviet War in Afghanistan. The film is loosely based on a real-life battle that took place at Elevation 3234 in early 1988, during the last large-scale Soviet military operation (Magistral) in Afghanistan.
Abram Lufer (born in Kiev, 25 August 1905 - died in Kiev, 13 July 1948) was an Ukrainian pianist. The Head of the Lysenko Musical Institute's piano department since 1929, Lufer won the Kharkiv'30 All-Ukrainian Piano Competition and was appointed the National Philharmonic Society of Ukraine's soloist. Two years later he was awarded a 4th prize at the II Fryderyk Chopin competition - having tied with Bolesław Kon, he lost at the coin flipping. His disciple Tatyana Goldfarb was awarded a 9th prize at the competition's next edition.
