The US has promised a tough response if Russia colludes with the Taliban

The United States will take tough retaliatory measures if information about collusion between Moscow and the terrorist group “Taliban” is confirmed. This was stated by the first Deputy Secretary of state of the United States Stephen Bigan.

The politician stressed that any information of this kind will be thoroughly investigated at the intergovernmental level. According to Bigan, the assumption that Russia is involved in supplying resources to militants from another country “to attack American soldiers will have the most serious consequences.”

The New York Times on June 26, citing intelligence agencies, reported that Russian military intelligence secretly offered to pay for the murder of American soldiers. Thus, Moscow allegedly wanted to disrupt the US peace talks with the Taliban, the publication says. In Russia, the charges were called baseless. The accuracy of the information was difficult to confirm and various American structures.

The Taliban was formed in 1994 at the height of the civil war in Afghanistan. In 1996-2001, the Taliban were in power in the country, and after their overthrow in 2001, they began to wage a guerrilla war with the government and NATO forces in Afghanistan and Pakistan. The Taliban and the government are currently looking for ways to reach a political compromise.
