Russian Foreign Ministry: Russia is working on the issue of lifting the Taliban’s status as a terrorist organization

Russia intends to remove the status of a terrorist organization banned in Russia from the Afghan Taliban* movement. As stated in the Russian Foreign Ministry, the issue is being studied.

Several Russian ministries are working on the issue of lifting the terrorist status of the Taliban*; the final decision on it will be made by the country's top leadership. As it turned out, adding a movement to the terrorist list turned out to be much easier than removing it from it. But everything is moving towards the point that the Taliban will no longer be considered terrorists in Russia.



As for removing the status of a terrorist organization from the Taliban movement, this issue is being studied by the Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Russian Ministry of Justice and other Russian relevant departments. The final decision will be made by the country's top political leadership

- said the Russian Foreign Ministry.

Today the Taliban control Afghanistan, they are loyal to Russia and China and really do not like Americans. Since the Taliban are the only centralized power, Russia is establishing cooperation with them on many issues. In May of this year, a delegation of the movement will visit Russia; the Taliban were invited to the forum starting in Kazan: “Russia – Islamic World: KazanForum”.

Let us recall that the Taliban came to power in Afghanistan in 2021, the American troops in the country shamefully fled, abandoning their weapons, as well as the people who had helped them for many years.

    Will jihat be declared in Ukraine soon? The Taliban seem to be against ISIS, and the Ukrainian Armed Forces are cooperating with the latter. If I were Zelensky, I would prepare the plane in advance so that it wouldn’t be like in 2021 in Kabul.

      We are becoming more flexible... Well, the States are not the only ones to take advantage of this... Having forgotten about all the grievances against the Taliban during the “Afghan War”, we are trying to use the principle - the enemy of my enemy may not be a friend, but at least a temporary ally... Well, why not use this...???

        The Taliban, of course, are radical guys. And for women they have too many restrictions, even in the opinion of a Russian.
        But they don’t go to someone else’s monastery with their own charter. They don’t bother us (although the patrols near Kushka catching drug caravans should be strengthened with drones with automatic search and round-the-clock surveillance), and we don’t need to teach them how to live correctly.
        Americans are despised, ISIS is hated, Russians, remembering their activities, are respected. Order in the country is maintained. And we flew to Moscow for negotiations more than once, successful negotiations. What else is needed to remove the terrorist status?

            The Taliban were declared terrorists even under the USSR.
            We also inherited this with a different legacy.
            In general, there were a lot of things that should have been abolished back in 1991.
            Fishing by the Japanese and British in our waters, for example, has finally stopped.

          And for women they have too many restrictions, even in the opinion of a Russian.

          Do you mean "EVEN for a Russian"?? By all imaginable and inconceivable standards, the Taliban have a huge number of restrictions on women. They do not have the right to receive an education, show their faces in public, look provocative, and a bunch of other things. But this is not a reason not to build bridges with Afghanistan, besides, maybe their radical position will soften over time - maybe after all, women will be allowed to receive a normal medical education and will be allowed into their hospitals, for starters. It is clear that their radicalism is due to the struggle with the Western world, in order to prevent the leakage of “liberalism and democracy” through even small allowances. “Today women are getting an education, and tomorrow they are shouting with placards in the square with their hair dyed rainbow colors.”

            It was written above that with its own charter, well, further in the text. The Taliban is radical Islam in a single country. They do not export their worldview. This is acceptable for us, for the reasons above. Therefore, it is possible and necessary to do business with the Taliban; the mere fact that they are tough on drugs is enough for this.

            By the way, a joint Russian-Afghan archaeological expedition recently resumed its work. Russian archaeologists will apparently soon go to excavations in Afghanistan. By the way, Afghanistan is very easy to visit. The Taliban at their embassy in Moscow issues visas for $80 with virtually no restrictions. Excavations will take place in the northern part of Afghanistan, 3 km east of the city of Shibargan on the Tillya-tepe hill. It is expected that archaeologists will discover ancient temple complexes dating back to the period of ancient Egypt. The case of Sarianidi V.I. will be continued by new researchers.

          There is no need to strengthen anything at all, the best control is self-control (on their part). You may not know, but they themselves offered this to us ten years ago (in return, though, they asked for machine guns lol ). So, if relations between our countries are established, they will do everything themselves.
          PS it would be nice on our part to convey to them canal bed strengthening technology Kush-Tepa on the Amu Darya River, which they are digging to grow not only drugs (they themselves want to get off this dangerous needle). But if they don’t strengthen the canal bed, then the water losses will be huge (there’s no point in blaming the mirror later, it’ll be our own fault for not providing the technology).

          But we have too many freedoms for women, from showing their naked bodies, drinking alcohol, smoking and ending with professional activities. Maybe it’s time for us to move from recklessness and licentiousness to observing the rules of conduct in public places? Everyone without exception...

"Review of human rights in Afghanistan for October-December 2023 from UNAMA - there was a case of women being arrested for buying condoms
          - single women were advised to get married under threat of dismissal
          - detained women who were not accompanied at work by a male relative
          - the consequences for failure to observe the proper hijab fall on the relative: 1st time - a warning, 2 - a call to the "morality police", 3 - arrest for up to 3 days, 4 - court
          - Taliban release women detained for poor hijab within a few hours
          - 69 people were blown up by mines and ammunition, of which 11 people died
          - at the end of 2023, more than 490 thousand Afghans left Pakistan in 3,5 months
          - universities were obliged to destroy literature that contradicts the Hanafi madhhab
          - 08.11 the emir adopted the Law “On Consideration of Complaints”, regulating the work of the “morality police”
          “There is another bill on the emir’s desk that could give the “morality police” force powers (arrest for up to 3 days).”

            Hand on heart, we must admit that “friends of the USA” are the same as pilot fish for a shark.
            Each shark is accompanied by its faithful pages - striped pilot fish. These creatures are tens of times smaller than a giant fish, but, nevertheless, fearlessly travel side by side with a recognized killer. Pilots got their name because when any creature suitable for the role of food for a shark appears in their field of vision, they quickly rush forward, as if showing the way to their poorly sighted captain.

              The only thing is that I know whether this is so in nature, but with America it looks like this. If the intended victim itself turns out to be a predator, then first these “pilots” go to it for lunch, and then the shark thinks whether it will be more expensive for itself to sort things out with this predator. Because in the ocean, although the shark is the dominant predator, there are those who dine on sharks.
              And the shark itself, probably out of hunger or greed, will also go for a snack...

      Not a word about Afghan “agriculture”...


      Recently there was an interesting article on the AS website. It told about people from Tajikistan coming to Russia. There is also information about ISIS and agriculture.

      I'll give you an excerpt.
      Check out the entire article.
      Very informative.

      At this stage, it is beneficial for Russia to cooperate with ISIS.

      ....Moreover, everyone is hearing about the epic construction of irrigation systems in Afghanistan carried out by the Taliban government. The water from the Vakhsh, a tributary of the Amu Darya, will be used for water, and in addition to irrigation canals, the Taliban are building monumental hydroelectric power stations, and the valleys will be filled with water to produce electricity. At the moment, those valleys that are ready to be filled with water for hydroelectric power stations are inhabited by ethnic opponents of the victorious Pashtuns - Tajiks, and previously heroin poppy grew in the notorious valleys. Accordingly, the Taliban believe that they are doing a good deed, and Russia and China, having observed “heroin epidemics” at home from their own experience, support them in this matter. But where should poppy producers from the same Panjshir go?

      As I already said, the Pyanj region of the former Kurgan-Tube and now Khatlon (after the unification of the Kurgan-Tube and Kulyab regions) region borders the Afghan Panjshir Gorge. It is there that the Taliban are massively pushing Tajik drug producers out of Afghanistan. There and to the adjacent regions of Persian Khorasan.

      According to rumors, this population is “very gloomy” and “these are finally wild.” Accordingly, former Soviet Tajiks – even though they were once considered local “Islamists” – are now leaving these regions in large numbers. And they come to us in Russia.

      That is, since the “final victory of the Taliban in Afghanistan,” the nature of emigration from this republic to Russia has changed dramatically. Now those who once “hammered nails into the heads of living people in public in the square” are coming to us, as well as their children and grandchildren, and these do not speak Russian at all, and are not even going to. It is necessary to understand that these people, for the most part, are “blood relatives” for the same Rakhmon and his entire entourage, as well as ardent opponents of the leadership of Iran and the Taliban in Afghanistan, so in their homelands no one is waiting for them in their entirety and all that follows from this.
      Why and what exactly to do with this wave is not clear to me, but I hope the competent authorities will figure it all out. ...

      It was the Americans who revived drug production in Afghanistan; the world is afraid to talk about it directly, but they confirm production statistics under the Taliban and after the arrival of the United States, preferring not to comment further. The Americans have long-standing traditions in this area, the CIA has already once burned on the international drug trade to finance its operations, a congressional investigation officially confirmed this, but of course no one was punished, so they scolded a little.

        Now there is a tendency to replace opiates with the production of other drugs; for example, the production of methamphetamine has increased sharply.

            Opiates began to be fought when their prices fell due to market oversaturation. Now the quantity has decreased, but prices have increased. But it is the poppy crops that we are fighting against. But this is not the only option for drug production. There is not much to produce in Afghanistan. There is no industry, agricultural land is not the most convenient. Sage or whatever they are trying to introduce to them does not provide nearly as much profit as drugs.

        Following a drug ban imposed by the Taliban in 2023, opium cultivation in Afghanistan has dropped by 95 percent. This is evidenced by the results of a study conducted by the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).
        Opium cultivation fell in all parts of the country from 233 hectares to just 000 hectares in 10. This led to a 800 percent reduction in opium supply, from 2023 tons in 95 to 6 tons. The sharp decline in production had negative consequences for many vulnerable rural communities that were directly dependent on income from opium cultivation.
        “At the same time, this has provided a real opportunity to achieve lasting results in the fight against the illicit opium market and the damage it causes both locally and globally,” said UNODC Executive Director Ghada Wali. “The people of Afghanistan today need urgent humanitarian assistance to meet their most pressing needs and overcome the shock of loss of income. Afghanistan will be in dire need of major investment in sustainable livelihoods in the coming months.”
