Afghanistan is not going to completely abandon the Russian Mi-17 helicopters, the American technology will not replace them, but will strengthen the existing capabilities of the country's Air Force. This was announced to journalists on Thursday by the national security adviser to the President of Afghanistan, Mohammad Atmar.


Earlier and. Afghan Defense Minister Tariq Shah Bahrami told reporters that Afghanistan no longer needs Russian helicopters, because it receives helicopters from NATO member countries, Russian-made vehicles are serviced through other countries during the transition period.

In Kabul, said they would not give up the Russian helicopters


Speaking of the Mi-17 helicopters, the policy of Afghanistan is that we will keep Russian helicopters. And we will maintain a dual system - we will also buy American helicopters so that common efforts to combat terrorism will be supported by both Russian and American equipment.
Said Atmar.

According to him, in this case, cooperation with one side does not conflict with cooperation with the other.

The adviser to the President of Afghanistan also noted that the possibility of financing the United States of new purchases of Russian helicopters is not discussed, recalling that the purchase of Russian helicopters for the army of Afghanistan was carried out at the expense of the United States, but later the program was curtailed due to the deterioration of relations between Moscow and Washington.

First, we must unite around the four main problems - this is the process of reconciliation, counterterrorism, the fight against drug trafficking and organized crime, and funding issues will then

      They are not pigs, they are heavily pressured from Pin-dosii, so they agreed to purchase turntables with them. Afghanistan, although small and proud, but highly dependent on the West.
      So to condemn them is hardly correct.
      And without our eights in the form of Mi-17 there can not do, especially in the highlands, there Americans do not fly.
      And the maintenance of our turntable is much cheaper, simpler, and most importantly less often than their competitors.

    It's only the beginning. We did not have time, as they say, to dry the ink, that your helicopters are on our side, and then turn 180 *. We will not give up your helicopters. Something does not grow together with them. Explicitly hastened with the previous statement.

      No, it’s just that Trump decided that Afghanistan can already buy it himself ... But the Afghan government is not at all sure ... They say there is no money, they (ISIS) beat us. Give us the money ...

    But what difference does it make on someone else’s money. If it suddenly happens that the West refuses to service its helicopters, they will catch up faster than the Russians. And given that the West is still the partner, this can happen at any time.

      As far as I remember, striped took our helicopters because they can operate at high altitudes, but their helicopters are not, and it’s cheaper and easier to control for Afghans.

    Yeah, our and yours, so to speak, the legalized form of trade in their own independence! fool Just for them, the turntables from the Yankees are very expensive, and even more so, they are many times more difficult to operate and repair. Do not trample the mound with their nose! sad

      It’s easy for you to argue.

      Well, you really are not in the subject.

    If the Afghans unite, then God will help. And if the Afghans, the USA and Russia, then go through the forest and do not turn anywhere.

    While all are sown with poppy seeds, instead of wheat under the auspices of Amers, they will dance to their tune. Heroin is more expensive than grain!

    Yes, everything is fine!
    Super trained Afghan technical staff will quickly bring super helicopters to zero. This has already happened once and ended very quietly, the Americans realized that they were getting excited

    Afghanistan. As far as I remember, it’s always at war. And it will at least fight with itself. And helicopters can come in handy. But I don’t think that the country that is always at war needs to be helped. We went through this.

    Transgenderness even reached mid-Asia: Afghan National Security Advisor to the President of Afghanistan Mohammad Atmar and acting Minister of Defense of Afghanistan Tariq Shah Bahrami they tried to declare themselves to be worthy and respected people, and they behaved very unworthy.

    will they buy a dozen helicopters or not - the tenth matter. I was interested in other questions:
    the government of Afghanistan is not fighting the production of drugs in its own territory? they want to fight with DRUG TRAFFIC, i.e. the transportation of drugs throughout Afghanistan.
    ways to combat this phenomenon, which over the years have allowed an order of magnitude increase production am
