Afghan Vice President General Dostum called on Moscow to help Kabul with arms in the fight against Islamic State militants

Vice-President of Afghanistan Abdul-Rashid Dostum asked Moscow for military assistance in the fight against the so-called "Islamic state", whose influence (IG) in Afghanistan is increasing. It is reported by the news agency Pajhwok.


Afghan Vice President General Dostum called on Moscow to help Kabul with arms in the fight against Islamic State militants


Dostum told the Afghan media that he became aware of the plans of the IS militants to conduct a series of terrorist acts in Afghanistan, as well as in one of the countries of Central Asia and even in the Russian Federation.

General Abdul-Rashid Dostum:
Russia should be aware of the threat from the “Islamic State” and could provide military aircraft, helicopters and weapon.


According to the vice-president of Afghanistan, the Russian weapons would help the Afghan army to resist the IS militants, since the Afghan soldiers "are well versed in Russian-made weapons."

Dostum said that he had recently visited the northern regions of Afghanistan, where the militant activity of various groups, including the IG, had recently been noted. If we believe Dostum, the Afghan army cleared the provinces of Faryab and Sari-Pul from militants, among which (again, according to Dostum) were ethnic Uzbeks and Chechens. The leaders of two gangs - Sheikh Maulana and Kari Zabiullah were destroyed during the operation.

For reference: Abdul-Rashid Dostum studied in the USSR. He worked in the state security bodies of the government of Afghanistan, loyal to Moscow. After the withdrawal of the Soviet contingent supported the pro-Soviet government of Afghanistan, headed by Mohammad Najibullah. In the 90-ies Dostum participated in operations against the Taliban. At the time of his presidency, Hamid Karzai served as Deputy Minister of Defense of Afghanistan. Dostum perfectly speaks Russian and in Afghanistan is considered a pro-Russian politician.

    Help, we will help. But where is the guarantee that later this weapon will not be used against us and our allies, or it will not be in the hands of the same ISIS militants as in Iraq? And by the way, are they making the same requests to the US?

          Were they not ashamed to buy rocket engines from us, which were dusting at our warehouses for 30 years? And astronauts go to the ISS with us. And in the new Boeing, which they want to launch in mass production in 2018, 40% of titanium from Russia. And nothing, and nothing to do with sanctions. Sanctions - this is for zheks with their rotten apples and balts with pickled sprats. And then a lot of money, here no one will joke and engage in nonsense.

      Will definitely start. That's why American geopolitics. In British diplomacy, the main success of the twentieth century was that they managed to incite Hitler against the USSR, turning him away from the Islands. And for the American, they put the Union into Afghanistan. And now they want to surround us with Afghans around us, so that we’ll go into each one, and so that everyone’s still armed. There are weapons exhibitions - come, buy. And bilateral agreements are just a mess. It’s not a question, of course - it will be necessary, remember how AKMS lies in the hand, we’ll fight again. But I would like to live quietly myself and my grandson in a few years to be sent to the army, and not to the war.

        However, there is a grain of truth. In August, 8 BDKs went there and all with a slide. Even the Security Council and wealthy come with presents. From there, everyone had already seen BTR-82A, cookies, tigers, and now fresh, UAVs. Further more...

      If you can pay for the war with technology, why pay with blood? Remember the “Land Liz”, you can come up with something similar. Moreover, they are not asking for "Armata" and T-50 ...
      PS EMNIP, Masud and Dostum already received Russian military assistance in the 90s, when they fought with the Taliban in northern Afghanistan. And judging by the fact that the "students" did not appear in Tajikistan, quite successfully.

You and Amyrikos are building a new country, they are preparing your army and police, they have their own contingent, which helps you ship heroin caravans all over the world, and suddenly you started singing.

    It seems to me, or some in the region are beginning to understand that sagging beneath the United States every day is becoming not only less and less profitable, but simply dangerous. Local kings were happy to export terrorism anywhere with the CIA’s money, and as the United States decided to burn their own huts, they coughed quickly and began to frantically search for options. For me - we are witnessing the restoration of the Soviet level of influence in the region. But this time, an old mistake cannot be made. Only business, nothing personal. No friends. Partners and tactical allies are much more profitable and convenient.
