The US Senate demanded to declassify information about the alleged "payments" of Russia to the Taliban

In the United States, the topic of the alleged payments made by Russian intelligence to the Taliban for the murder of the American military in Afghanistan is being raised again. The Senate demanded to declassify the available information on this case.


Senator Tammy Duckworth appealed to the director of national intelligence Avril Haynes, who called for the declassification and release of intelligence information about alleged payments by Russian intelligence to the militants of the Russian-banned Taliban movement for attacks on the US military in Afghanistan.

Duckworth criticized the previous administration of Donald Trump, which did not give an official answer to the question about the "evidence" found.

(...) possible promises of rewards for attacks on the US military could have inspired and incentivized the Taliban to launch attacks (...) no formal answer was provided to the main questions about whether any evidence of payment claims was found

- the senator's letter says.

Recall that история about alleged payments by Russian intelligence to the Taliban for attacks on the American military in Afghanistan appeared in The New York Times in the summer of 2020. At the same time, the newspaper could not provide any evidence.

Later, Donald Trump, then the US president, said that the newspapermen "fabricated another hoax about Russia." The head of the Central Command (CENTCOM) of the US Armed Forces, General Kenneth Mackenzie, came to the same opinion, saying that the newspaper's claims about collusion between Russia and the Taliban were unconvincing and groundless.

The Russian Foreign Ministry called these publications "completely false."

    When the Anglo-Saxons talk about the Russians, they do not need any proof by definition (Hiley Likely) ... all the propaganda of the United States and its allies is aimed at dehumanizing the Russians, and this Trump and the United States Congress stuck in the same series.
    All this will then be used to justify sanctions, terrorist and sabotage acts against Russia.

      You see, as long as there is a division of humanity into peoples and countries, with different views on life and the idea of ​​what is truth and what is a lie, such spreading cranberries from the United States will always appear.

      From the last "cranberry" from the Anglo-Saxons about the "hand" of Moscow - the "poisoning" of Litvinenko, the downed Boeing over Ukraine, the "poisoning" of the Skripals, the Trump elections, the "poisoning" of Navalny and his subsequent landing, the cold in Texas, the Kennedy assassination and the like. If you want to strangle your opponents and competitors, there will always be a reason to impose sanctions.

      This canoe is already more than 500 years old, after the Rurikovichs, Ivan 3 and Ivan 4, began to strengthen and expand Russia, so you need to take it for granted and not get discouraged.

        I don't quite agree. Truth and lies are the same for everyone. However, different societies look at the very fact of the presence of lies in different ways. The presence of double standards for the sake of profit, it allows. And this is one of the cornerstones of Western civilization.

          Therefore, colleague, I am outraged that the demand of US Senator Tammy Duckworth to the director of US National Intelligence Eurel Haynes will be followed by a memorandum from Eurel Haynes sent to the US Senate, demanding "a good squeeze of these Russians." Ultimately, in some mysterious, but quite a negative way, this will affect the ordinary citizens of Russia - they will squeeze us. Isn't the way we are consistently and relentlessly pressed economically - it is not a long-term political outcome of the efforts of the United States?

      So I do not understand why ours are silent on this topic. Why not publish the data on how much it cost the Americans to help the spooks who fought against us in Afghanistan, with the transfer for which they paid. After all, these data are in the archives and to make a secret out of them, there is no sense.

    Well, here the reason is simple - the Taliban and Russia have a common goal - to destroy the production of drugs in Afghanistan, which is protected by the United States, in their own office. data, here literally 5 minutes ago I posted a picture here in another topic, I repeat:

    https://fas.org/sgp/crs/row/RL32686.pdf
    Drug production in Afghanistan. The end of 2001 is the invasion of the city. An official report published by the US Congressional Research Service in 2009 called Afghanistan: Narcotics and US Policy.
    It is clear that the United States believes that the Russian Federation is helping the Taliban))) The actions of all those around them write from themselves, and the United States has always supported illegal armed groups in such cases.

It is possible that the new administration and intelligence leadership will find "evidence" that will become the topic of discussion of the next sanctions against Russia and the political "demise" of Trump.

    It looks like nonsense, why should Russia offer money to the Taliban, if the latter are already at war with the Americans. And if you believe the media, the information was received from some prisoner who had heard that someone allegedly Russian representatives offered money for an attack on the Americans.
    Maybe, of course, the US is looking for an excuse for the defeat in Afghanistan, and again it is Russia to blame.
