The Russian Foreign Ministry announced the involvement of American intelligence in Afghan drug trafficking

American intelligence, which allegedly allegedly has ties to the banned Taliban, is involved in drug trafficking in Afghanistan. Zamir Kabulov, director of the Second Asian Department of the Russian Foreign Ministry, said this on air of "Russia 1".


According to the Russian diplomat, the fact that the Americans are involved in the drug trade is an “open secret,” of which they are well aware in Kabul. However, everyone in Afghanistan has already got used to it and waved a hand.

These countless kickbacks from the projects that were there, the participation of the same wonderful American intelligence agents who blame ours for something, in drug trafficking. They have planes from Kandahar, from Bagram they fly anywhere without verification — to Germany, to Romania. Well, such a business

- said Kabulov.

He noted that the Americans are involved in drug trafficking, and the money received from this trade goes to pay militants for the passage of caravans through their territory.

Earlier, the Russian Foreign Ministry announced the involvement of American intelligence in the drug trade.

Recall that the NSA accused Moscow of allegedly conspiring with the Taliban, but could not provide any evidence.

          Not really, unfortunately. The catch is that what the United States is talking about is heard by the whole world, and what we say, it is quite possible that only we will hear. A topic with evidence would have gotten a bigger sound in the world if you hadn't said it - it would have been not so easy to ignore its world media

              To not defecate anywhere, like mattresses. The difference between a kutenok and mattresses is huge - the kutenok, growing up and receiving training, understands what is possible and what is not. This understanding is not available to mattresses. There is a Ukrainian proverb for mattresses: "Pagan vydu (face) has no shame."

For all the people on Earth are Indians, and the USA is the sheriff among them. He shoots when he wants, judges how the left heel wishes. For the thoughts of the Sheriff Indians do not care.

                But the Americans said that all the dollars in the world belong to the United States, and the Indians are leased. And now the United States broke the lease agreement with the Russian Indians (who are called oligarchs for misunderstanding) for $ 15 billion, having returned the property to themselves, the Iranian Indians generally parted with $ 200 billion, now the US Department of Justice and Deutsche Indian shook out 20 billion for insufficient squatting at KU (4 billion Deutsche Bank , 4 billion Volkswagen, 10 billion Bayer, little gold coin).

            At mattresses, in little-controlled Kosovo, after the bombing and collapse of Yugoslavia, one of the largest US bases in Europe, Camp Bondsteel, was formed, where aircraft from Afghanistan regularly fly. And already from Kosovo, opium and gerych are spreading all over Europe + drug caravans that, like trains, go to the Central Asian republics, across the northern border of Afghanistan, where, by a strange coincidence, the largest number of ISIS is observed, from where the nonsense spreads to Tajikistan, Kazakhstan, Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan with packaging to Russia. These schemes have long been known, but there is no way to officially prevent this, since there is no third force in Afghanistan, and the mattresses "at least spit in the eyes, everything is God's dew", especially if it is in their interests. However, it should be noted that the statement about the involvement of the United States in drug trafficking was made at such a high level for the first time. The exchange of "pleasantries" took place, and if, as evidence of the involvement of the Russian special services in the "order of the murder" of American military units by the Taliban, mattresses have nothing to show except for "highy like", then most likely our side has "lethal" evidence to substantiate such a statement ... If they were not there, then there would be no statement.

          Kabulov, as the ambassador of the Russian Federation to Afghanistan, at the height of the intervention of US troops and their NATO allies, is in the know about the activities of avid partners. In general, I remember back in the early XNUMXs under the auspices of the UN that studies were conducted to drastically reduce the distribution area of ​​opium poppy and reduce the yield of the final product, something like some kind of fungal disease, as I understand it. UN students covered up these studies.

        I don’t remember when (long ago) they provided. With the presence of the United States, drug trafficking has risen at times. I remember dragging (I’ve read it at the UN a long time ago, don’t judge strictly) the law that it is impossible to destroy poppy crops, as this will greatly affect the standard of living of the local population. When ours were, it didn’t fall but grew, and schools and construction grew without a poppy, and these eateries were not built, but they save the poppy like the apple of an eye.

        As I heard, our heroin was transported from there not at the initiative of the state, but in the personal interests of some bosses. But when this case "surfaced", the main witness, the former commander of one of the GSVG armies, to whose airfield the "cargo" was delivered, suddenly died. I don't know how it ended there, but the careers of many promising commanders and military leaders were severely cut after Afghanistan.

    Jackals, even jackals, shawl at nights in the desert, urging their brothers in a flock to exploits.
    It was a shame for the jackals that Putin once again outwitted the West with his Iskanders, which he “hid” in Syria, where the complexes were brought to perfection in combat conditions. The need for their use precisely on Syrian soil has now disappeared, most targets are hit by airborne forces, but these OTRKs have remained in Khmeimim (presumably 4 complexes). And no longer for testing - when using missiles with a range of 2 to 500 kilometers, Iskander-M from Syria can keep a US base in Europe in sight and, say, it can get at least Warsaw (less than 5000 km), at least Bucharest (2500 1 km).
    Therefore, the ravings about Russia's ties with the Taliban are such a touchy jackal howling bony old woman Pelossi with the US intelligence community, sympathizing with the obsolete democrats.

          Long-range missiles, just like cruise anti-ship missiles, did not fall under the treaty. But Russia had them and, as it soon became clear, can be used by the Iskander complex in the Iskander-K modification and can be successfully used both on ships and on ground targets. This medium-range missile is known as the 9M728 or R-500, its marching engine is similar to the 3M-14 cruise missile engine of the Caliber-NK missile system.


          While the INF Treaty was in effect, Putin “hid” his long-range missiles not only on ships, but also tested them (presumably from 2015) in Syria with reference to Iskander-M OTRK.

          After the termination of the agreement with the United States on the limitations of medium and short-range missiles, Russia turned out to be a missile "reserve" in cruise missiles that could hit targets at ranges from five hundred to five thousand kilometers,

    So they (the Americans) themselves also fund the Taliban. The question is, why should the Russian Federation strain and pay extra to terrorists, if everything already works by itself? The Taliban, and so, without haste, are not averse to shooting Americans, and if they still don’t give them money, they’ll throw it up, then it's fine! Russia only remains to observe from the side ...

    Earlier in the media, it was written that the Americans delivered opiates to Europe along the route Afghanistan - Bondstill base in Kosovo, and given the availability of US bases around the world, it is not a problem to distribute drugs

    What does Irangate start with, does anyone remember? Where did the Yankees from drugs put the money in the wrong place, what did they inflict on them?

    In the voice of Stalin: Shoot!
    Such statements should not be made by an official of the Russian Foreign Ministry ever! There are enough other voiceover channels!

    American intelligence, which announced Russia's allegedly existing ties with the banned Taliban movement, who jumped it out? Like a Newtime rag, did it jump out?

    Someone does not believe that the cache recaptured from this business goes somewhere other than the personal accounts of shareholders. So that the armed Yankees pay to the natives to the teeth, or for the passage-fare ... I doubt it.

    As a response to the American run over, rather weak. The fact that the Americans paid for attacks on Russian soldiers is not news, they even supply weapons directly to all the "right Islamists" in Syria, for example.

    So this is no secret to anyone. The Yankees are engaged in drugs all over the world, and with the help of DEA they regulate the market at home.

    For the rural population, this is the main source of income, controlled by local clans, which, in turn, are covered by the CIA with its own extra-budgetary funds and, therefore, funds that are not accountable to Congress for special operations.
