President of Afghanistan: After the withdrawal of Soviet troops, we went through rebellions and bloodshed


The head of the provincial police department Farah Farid Bakhtavar reports that four law enforcement officers were captured by the Taliban.

Against this background, attention is drawn to the statement of the President of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan Ashraf Ghani. According to the head of Afghanistan, the country experienced difficult times after the withdrawal of the Soviet contingent and continues to experience them now. Ashraf Ghani called for the Afghan people to unite in front of modern threats.

Ashraf Ghani quotes "Afghanistan.ru":
Since the last Soviet soldier left Afghanistan, we have been restless history civil war, uprisings, defeat and bloodshed.


The president called on Afghans to support government-led reforms and help restore peace and stability.

One of the reforms of the government of Afghanistan is total purge in the ranks of the military command. Their posts have already lost about 160 Afghan generals (from among the generals of the Ministry of Defense of the Republic).

      And I believe that we (more precisely, the leadership of the USSR) betrayed the Afghans, just like the whole Soviet people subsequently.

        No one betrayed .. When the troop deployment was to end ... it ended. They left (created) an army for the Afghans, the Ministry of Internal Affairs, built vital facilities, trained specialists - work, I do not want ...

        I would not say that they betrayed, our troops still had to be withdrawn from there, but it would be possible to support government troops with weapons, ammunition and fuel, even in the conditions of a crumbling alliance and a new Russia ...

        The leadership of the USSR did not betray, it abandoned them, due to its insolvency. But Yeltsin, as soon as he entered the throne, immediately betrayed them. Cutting off all supplies and interrupting all communications, on the advice of overseas masters, it was then that Nadzhibul was hanged. the proverb - "What we have is not stored ....." is relevant not only for us.

        Russia, as the state and successor of the Union, has nothing to repent of. The traitors were former Soviet party leaders, including to the Politburo, who were fed by the West. The USSR fell a victim of betrayal, collapsing, he left his former “wards” without cover, including and afghan.

      Blood, civil war, devastation cleanse the brains well, but always stubborn and corrupt, nothing will help.

    the country experienced difficult times after the withdrawal of the Soviet contingent and continues to survive them now
    It is not strange, but those who fought with our contingent speak well of Shurawi and critically of the Americans. The other day there was a film about today's Afghanistan, in which the Afghans recalled that period. Indeed, the country and its inhabitants have a difficult fate and continuous wars.

    Afghanistan, a tungsten meat grinder - for centuries turns into mincemeat all who came to them with weapons. And the British, and Soviet, and Americans with all the naty. An amazing state.

      15 thousand Soviet troops in 10 years - a meat grinder? After the withdrawal of troops from Afghanistan and renewed drug trafficking from its territory, in the next 10 years, 1 million people died from drugs - this is a meat grinder, and, moreover, in peacetime.

    The amazing thing is that everyone who won Afghanistan, and since ancient times did not do only the “laziest," then they began to be weighed down by this "weight on their feet" ... No profit, only losses.
    Afghans are one of the poorest nations, and for a "small fee" from the "conquerors of the conqueror" they arrange another "winner" a fun life, all the same there is no other income. The Soviet Union and Afghanistan are neighbors, and it was more or less clear why they were stuck there. But why the "world hegemon" he gave up ... Pogegemonit once again?

      Afghanistan, from ancient times, was the patrimony of the Anglo-Saxons, where they, along with other famous places, grow drugs, which, in turn, are gene weapons. With the help of genetic weapons, they mowed down the world's population incommensurably more than with the help of military weapons. And all this without a single “shot”.

    There was a series of televisions on the anniversary of the withdrawal of our troops in 1989. They said that daily they killed Afghan security forces, representatives of the army and police.

    They arrange it of course, but if they are not equipped with modern weapons and cave agitation, then you can calm them down.

    This problem is ALWAYS ours! By virtue of even, simply, geographical location!
    If you didn’t forget, we didn’t go there for nothing, if we hadn’t stood there ALREADY at the time of the Pershing! Another thing is that you can’t fight and at the same time try to hide the war! This is fraught with just the same unjustified losses.
    If you fight, then fight with the full exertion of forces and means, so that the enemy trembles only from your mention!
    Ame.ra cannot do this, but we can, but sometimes (with a weak political will) we do some kind of curtsy before we “soak in the toilet” !? On horseradish goat Marlezon ballet? She doesn’t understand anything in him ...
