Military Review

US requires Afghanistan to abandon Kalashnikov assault rifles

48
In the Federation Council of the Federal Assembly of the Russian Federation in favor of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the country. One of the topics of his report is related to the supply of Russian weapons abroad. At the same time, Sergey Lavrov announced frequent cases of unfair competition. In particular, we are talking about attempts by the United States to prevent the supply of Russian military equipment and weapons to Afghanistan.


Sergei Lavrov said that Washington is putting pressure on Kabul also in terms of "the need to abandon the previously delivered Russian weapons." In particular, the United States previously demanded that Afghan security forces abandon the use of thousands of Kalashnikov 50 assault rifles.

US requires Afghanistan to abandon Kalashnikov assault rifles


RIA News cites the statement of the Minister of Foreign Affairs of Russia:
In addition to the questions that arise where these 50 thousands of machine guns will disappear, we have already asked this question, to the Afghans. Another question arises - what explains such a desire to undermine the ability of the Afghan army to use the weapons it is used to and impose a new one, which you still need to get used to? There are no answers to this, except that the Americans are trying to repair our obstacles simply for the love of this "art."


As is well known, the aforementioned "art" of the United States is also in the adoption of such sanctions, which would put American companies in the priority economic position. Including those companies that are involved in the arms trade.

        As far as I know, in Afghanistan, the Americans themselves are happy to use Kalash instead of their made in USA furs.

          Not. The problem with local AKs is that they are Pakistani or killed seriously. Another problem - in sweeping it can fly from your own, to a characteristic sound. Third, different AKs are not hung up on local AKs that make life much easier and to which Americans are accustomed.

          SOF exception - but they are understandable.

            With my own eyes I saw an American-made AK in 2005 in St. Petersburg at the Museum of Artillery at an exhibition dedicated to Kalashnikov. Produced if memory serves in Tennessee.

      Afghanistan doesn’t buy weapons on its own. The same helicopters bought the United States from Russia for them. Now economic sanctions are introduced and the United States doesn’t buy weapons from you. Here and Kalash’s will not buy. Especially for the “great” Afghans laughing States will not violate their own laws. Lavrov does not seem to know all these nuances. belay

    Not otherwise, farmers want the next "railguns" to steam up or the "no-equal in the world" M-4 bullets. Although the Americans, those who conduct such lobbying, do not understand that the rules of shooting in the mountains and on the plain are somewhat different. And if you give a person a weapon whose behavior he is not familiar with in these conditions, this means knowingly disarming him.

      Gromyko had a rule: from American business trips to bring gifts to Brezhnev, Andropov, and later Chernenko. Gifts were of high quality, but rather monotonous: hats, shirts, ties. He made these purchases for his comrades-in-arms and Andrei Andreyevich Viktor Sukhodrev himself. It was especially difficult for leaders to look for old-fashioned “homburg” hats, felt, with a high top, slightly curved around the circumference and silk-trimmed fields that were popular in America in the 30s. Sukhodrev found the Stetson store on Madison Avenue where such hats were sold. Gromyko gave him his hat in order to buy a new one according to her model, and demanded only a mouse-gray headdress and no other. Sukhodrev brought hats for viewing, Gromyko meticulously selected the right ones. And then the initials of the future owners of “AAG” (Gromyko), “LIB” (Brezhnev), “YuVA” (Andropov) ... were displayed in gold on them in the store. ”
      And whose industry did he lobby for?

    EVERYTHING AROUND BAD- yes, it is. It will not be otherwise. Never. How would we not like the whole world to like, and whatever we do

    "The US requires Afghanistan to abandon Kalashnikov assault rifles"
    - And Afghanistan requires the United States to abandon the NORAD system. But it is unlikely that the Americans will agree to such a change (exchange). They "work" according to the principle: you are everything to us, and we are nothing to you.

    In general, type in the search engine "features of shooting in the mountains." There are many articles. That is, many factors must be taken into account. From what level to which you shoot, the difference in atmospheric pressure, humidity and wind. And a lot of different things. With unusual weapons, you just have a lot of fun at the beginning.

    To refuse AK in Afghanistan is such a joke?
    In conditions of dustiness, severe temperature drops, and even the absence of expensive oil from the United States how long the M-16 will last, I don’t think that the Afghans will be offered something more modern, although this does not play a role in these conditions.

    Afghans would rather agree to cut off their hands than they would refuse from Kalash.
    There is nothing to replace him with !!!
    And who, who, and the Afghans went through everything that shoots and can’t shoot, can they really trust American American sniffles?

      YES rather they will cut off the hands of the Americans "to the head" good lol For these people have been fighting for decades and long ago compared and made the choice themselves. Well, say anything you like, but in the free market you can buy weapons from any country and our "Kalash" and American "shovels" and Yvreyskoy shit, but at least a French perversion. But how many video facts do not come across - EVERYTHING with Kalash, if someone has something else - definitely someone’s national gang and they can’t change their weapons to the one they want tongue

    In particular, the United States previously demanded that Afghan security forces abandon the use of 50 of thousands of Kalashnikov assault rifles.

    Are you crazy, even the Georgians left their M16 in the barracks and went to Tskhinvali with AK, and now for the Afghans in the 30 years of the war, AK became an extension of the body part .....
