Nebenzia: US allegations of Russian support for the Taliban - is utterly absurd

UN Resident Representative Vasily Nebenzya commented on reports by Western sources that Russia allegedly supports the Taliban militants (* banned in the Russian Federation) in Afghanistan. According to the Russian diplomat, such accusations fit into the overall Western concept of a disinformation campaign launched against the Russian Federation. RIA News gives the text of the statement of the Russian Permanent Representative:
We consider that a deliberately launched information campaign on the unsubstantiated accusation of our country in supporting the Taliban (*), including their funding and regular deliveries, is unacceptable. weapons. We see this as an attempt to shift the blame from a sick head to a healthy one. Russia has consistently and systematically advocated the retraining of the Taliban movement (*) to a terrorist group, which would exclude the possibility of mitigating the criminal prosecution of its members.

According to Vasily Nebenzi, Russia continues to insist on such an approach in order to eliminate “loopholes” in international legislation that allow terrorists to escape responsibility.

Nebenzia: US allegations of Russian support for the Taliban - is utterly absurd

Recall that earlier, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson announced that Russia was allegedly supplying weapons to the Taliban militants (*). At the Russian Foreign Ministry, Tillerson’s statements called the “utter absurdity” and advised to better observe where and to whom the United States themselves supply weapons, repeatedly “Overshot in Syria” when dumping containers with weapons. In those cases, American weapons were in the hands of ISIS militants (* banned in the Russian Federation). Now with this American weapon, igilovtsy reached the north of Afghanistan.

        This fuss at the UN has always been, just not covered so widely, and there were no such technological capabilities as it is now.

      There were no Taliban then. Nevertheless, they shot at us, as they shoot at the Americans today. Only now in Afghanistan there are many who say that now they would not shoot at Shuravi. On the other hand, you are right - why shouldn't we, in the image of the USA, look for “moderate” Taliban to counter the spread of ISIS?

    Interestingly, if we hypothetically imagine that the Taliban had established arms supplies at the level of supplies to dushmans in the 80s, how long would they take the amers out of Afghanistan?

      You somewhat misunderstand the modern tactics of war from the United States. The states have not fought for a long time, as practice shows, in a traditional battle they are not very. Modern wars, they “win”, either by bombing, that is, remotely, without direct contact with the enemy, or they are stupidly buying. And when asked by the Americans, like: “Have you won the war anywhere?”, You can hear the strange answer: “Of course we won, we bought it.” Amazing things are happening in the modern world.

    This absurdity has been going on for several months and obviously not in vain. Most likely, Americans expect a possible disclosure of their direct ties with the Taliban, therefore, by an ingrained habit, they are already transferring arrows to Russia.

      The United States is setting the stage as a safety net, for another reason, to strengthen sanctions against Russia.

    Now, if the Taliban would help the United States Indian fight for their independence and the expulsion of foreigners from their ancestral lands, then Russia would support both the Indians and the Taliban in the fight against American dishonesty!
