“This is video is part of a series created from interviews conducted by Edward C. Ezell with Mikhail Kalashnikov in 1989 at the House of Optics in Moscow and at the Museum of Artillery, Engineering & Signal Corp in Leningrad. All the footage is courtesy of the Smithsonian Institution Archives. All I have done is try to fix the audio and cut some of the waiting time between tapes out. So otherwise, what you are seeing is entirely unadulterated.”  – Bakelite and Waffles Youtube Channel
