US intelligence said there was no direct evidence of a "collusion" between Russia and the Taliban in Afghanistan

After a series of materials in the US that allegedly there is evidence of funding by the Russian intelligence of the Afghan Taliban (* "Taliban" - a terrorist group banned in Russia), in the same press they actually act out. Recall that the publication The New York Times published material stating that Russia allegedly provides financial support for the Taliban in order to “hunt” for US troops in Afghanistan.


The Russian Foreign Ministry called this information an outright lie. And US President Donald Trump once again used the phrase "fake news" in relation to NYT.

Now The New York Times is publishing material that literally says the following:

US intelligence in a presidential administration report said it had no direct evidence of a Taliban collusion with Russia.

The US National Anti-Terrorism Center called the information about allegedly financing by the Russian intelligence of the Taliban movement "data of medium reliability." Translated into ordinary language, this means that data from certain sources have been received, but there is still no direct confirmation of this.

But the US National Security Agency continues to claim that they have "data on the collusion of the Taliban with Russia." At the same time, the NSA is guided by the US, apparently, the slogan familiar to the West lately: “We have evidence, but we can’t show them to you, because they are secret.” The main thing for the West in such situations is any reason to impose yet another anti-Russian sanctions, even if this reason, as they say, is sucked out of the finger.

    And there will be no evidence, because there was no collusion. It is not our topic to negotiate with terrorists an attack on third countries. It is not necessary to measure by itself.

    This is just another reason for possible sanctions. You take any nonsense from the air and turn it into sanctions for any country. The mattresses in this spices.

        At a regular, regular Pentagon briefing, the U.S. military officially denied the newspaper version of the conspiracy. It seems that we are all diverging .... but no, the anonymous author of this article needs to draw conclusions against the background of the refuted facts)

            It has long been known that the CIA used the proceeds from the sale of Afghan heroin to finance its covert operations, etc.
            So nothing has changed ..

          US Presidential Election 2020 November 3 Tuesday


          The American Republican Committee of The Lincoln Project, trying to prevent Donald Trump from being re-elected, created a Russian-language commercial in which he accused the Russian special services of helping the current president, The Hill writes. The creators of the video said that "comrade" Trump again received the approval of his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

      TASS, July 2. Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the US House of Representatives, announced the need for measures against Russia in connection with the latter's alleged contacts with the radical Taliban movement (banned in Russia) against US troops in Afghanistan. The politician expressed this opinion on Wednesday on the air of the MSNBC TV channel.
      "We must impose sanctions against the Russian Federation, and we must do this immediately," Pelosi said. She added that the President of the United States Donald Trump "neglected his duty" and did not take measures to protect the US military, although, she said, was notified of existing suspicions.

In his opinion, restrictions should be imposed against Vladimir Putin and the Main Intelligence Directorate of the Ministry of Defense of the Russian Federation,

    The CIA, RUMO, NSA, FBI and a number of special services are constantly competing with each other and supporting various parties (although they should be out of politics) often instead of benefit only harm the state that contains them. So it turns out that some say nonsense, others about some kind of average reliability. The main thing is that the duck is launched and is already hitting Trump, not to mention Russia, which is threatened with new sanctions by all sorts of crazy American women.

From the beginning of his career, a special services specialist determines a future "sponsor" for himself. There is nothing new under the Moon, in any country so.

    Whatever statements the US authorities make today, one thing is clear - the aristocratic elite of the United States, which today really controls the politics and life of the United States as a state, does not intend to enter into any negotiations with Russia, regardless of the statements of its president and state department. It is important to understand this in anticipation of the end of START-3 in 2021. They will offer conditions that are clearly unacceptable to Russia with only one purpose - to blab out real intentions to withdraw from all agreements limiting them. There is only one conclusion - the United States is leading to exacerbation, i.e. to war.
