Pentagon refutes GRU orders for the killing of US soldiers

44

The Pentagon officially denied the report of the New York Times that Russian intelligence offered the Taliban a reward for the killing of US soldiers and their allies in Afghanistan.


The Department of Defense continues to evaluate intelligence that Russian GRU operatives were engaged in dangerous activities against the US Armed Forces and the coalition in Afghanistan. To date, the Ministry of Defense does not have evidence confirming recent statements from open sources

- Pentagon spokesman Jonathan Hoffman noted on Monday.

Earlier, on the same day, the New York Times published another material accusing Russia of allegedly leading a far from "gentlemanly" game in Afghanistan. In particular, it was pointed out that the Russian military actually ordered the killing of American soldiers, promising cash rewards to the Taliban.

According to the United States Central Command's Joint Air Operations Control Center, the Air Force dropped 7423 bombs on Afghanistan - more than ever in the past 10 years. Over 100 Afghans have been killed or injured since 000, when the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan began documenting the casualties.

    The Pentagon knows what it is talking about. It is known who contains all this terrorist shop.

      America fed the Taliban from her own hand to counter the USSR in Afghanistan. She generously paid her fosterlings for the lives of our soldiers, "shuravi".
      There were prices: for an ordinary soldier - so much Afghani, for an ensign - so much, for an officer - so much ...
      But the one who feeds the snake with milk, let him remember - someday a reptile will bite its owner in the groin ...
      Now that zinc with the bodies of "exceptional" ones has been transported from Afghanistan, America believes that for "this way" the Taliban will not kill Ji-ai ...
      There is clearly a Russian interest. Ivanes pay damned terrorists. Because America is hated fiercely ...
      Our classic once said: "There is no need to blame the mirror if the face is crooked ..."
      But this phrase cannot be entered into American algorithms, how not to draw the sea.
      They are infallible. Even when children are killed from copters. Or finance the killers of children.
      God be their judge.
      Let them kiss the shoes in black .... request

      NYT will not apologize and trample further to drive this lies into the eyes of Americans. Before the election there will be a solid negative every day; sucked out of a finger.

    It would be better to make an article that with the presence of a mattress, the production of poppy and related drugs from it has grown significantly. and the fact that they exported it on their hercules to Europe and beyond

    The Pentagon officially denied the report of the New York Times that Russian intelligence offered the Taliban a reward for the killing of US soldiers and their allies in Afghanistan.

    This was immediately understandable, because Russia had never stooped to such a thing; if necessary, it itself would kill them.
    The skirmishes between our military clearly indicate this.
    Here, as in a joke: spoons were found, but the sediment remained. sad negative

    Pentagon refutes GRU orders for the killing of US soldiers

    They came up with such nonsense that later they themselves decided - nonsense ...

    The whole fuss due to the fact that the Americans, having captured the stronghold of the Taliban, found there a large amount of money in dollars. Several tens of thousands. The military gave the CIA to track by numbers where the money came from. They figured out that the money got into Afghanistan through a certain company, which is PURCHASED associated with Russia and the GRU.
    There is no direct evidence.

      Just wildly interesting. And perhaps the CIA tracked that the money came to Afghanistan from the CIA. Settlement for the supply of heroin. But admit it, a scandal of scandals will be. It's easier to push it to barbarian Russia. Moreover, the consequences will not be worse. Wash more, wash less. After all, the request to trace the receipt of banknotes in Afghanistan may have been official. And just getting rid of the answer would not work.

        You guessed. Dollars were handed over to the Taliban by drug dealers. But the entire route of money went through Russia.
        This is what the Kabul police do.

    The United States has records of wire transfers from an account controlled by Russia's General Intelligence Agency to an account linked to the Islamist Taliban, The New York Times reported June 30, citing three intelligence-related sources.

    Well, he denied, Trump also wrote that this is nonsense but what's the point? The main thing is that the goal of the stuffing has been achieved. For a while, attention has been diverted from the riots, again Trump is under the blow of accusations, hearings are being prepared in the Senate on this issue, once again they remembered "aggressive and hostile" Russia ... They have everything according to plan.
