Russia supplies free fuel to the Afghan Taliban

Russia finances Taliban militant operations against NATO in Afghanistan by supplying them with fuel

This is reported by the British edition of The Times with reference to Afghan officials and sources among Islamists.

So, according to the publication, Russian intelligence services send fuel shipments to the Afghan city of Khairaton on the border with Uzbekistan. From there, the fuel is sent free of charge to the Taliban-controlled companies.

The Taliban thus receive about $ 2.5 million in cash each month from fuel sales.

"We are selling fuel and distributing money directly to the commanders, and Russian supplies of fuel began to reach us 18 months ago. At first, it was only a few tankers to test the system, but then the number suddenly increased and a lot of tankers arrived every month, Russians give us all for free. - we just pay a fee for import, and then leave a profit to ourselves", - the treasurer of the" Taliban "from the province of Ghazni told the publication.

The Taliban has begun to publicize relations with international patrons in response to US President Donald Trump's decision to send an additional 3.8 thousand US military and new funding to the Afghan government.

"We accept money from Russians reluctantly, but it is necessary at this stage of our jihad," added the treasurer of the militants.

The Times maintains that in recent months, Russia has stepped up its support to strengthen the Taliban against the "Islamic State", as well as against the United States and its allies.

Earlier, US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said that Russia supplies weapons to the Taliban.

There is no reason to rejoice: Russia pointed to Putin's main mistake with the Crimea

There is no reason to rejoice: Russia pointed to Putin's main mistake with the Crimea

Russian political scientist Dmitry Oreshkin drew attention to the fact that it is not easy for Russia to assume the costs of retaining the annexed Crimea and a number of other "annexed" territories.

He said this in an interview with the "Apostrophe".

"For example, Crimea is a very serious consumer for the federal budget, and, accordingly, the funds are not paid to other regions of Russia. Crimea costs about 125 billion rubles a year (over 60 billion USD -"Apostrophe") .If Russia had only these costs, then It would not be terrible, given the large volume of the economy, but since, apart from the Crimea, it is necessary to pay for the Donbas, Syria, Abkhazia and other things, then this number of "connected" territories is not floats, which allow the economy to stay on the surface, but rather small, but pretty weighed stones that are in ovilnyuyut movement of the whole economy,"- says the analyst.

He noted that some countries, which are considerably less in Russia, have GDP at or above Russian levels.

"For example, now in Russia, if the nominal GDP in dollars is 1.4 trillion dollars a year, Russia's GDP is comparable to that of South Korea, which is about three times less than the population, not to mention the area. from Japan, whose territory is less than one Arkhangelsk region, so Russia is forced to smear resources on a very large territory, while Japan and South Korea are concentrating these resources, so Russia will lose in the economic competition, "said Oreshkin, adding that Russia's economic growth is slower, no world average.

Political scientist stressed that in the XXI century, the growth of territories does not give significant advantages.

"If in the nineteenth century, the accession of the territories meant strengthening the state, because there were new recruits, new theaters of hostilities, but now, in the XXI century, when the intensification of territories on the agenda is, rather, a strategic minus plus a strategic one," said Dmitry Oreshkin.

He added that Crimea in the long run is a "neck stone" for the Russian economy.

"Crimea is another black hole, another grant region, and now the propaganda win is obvious - all Putin applauds that Krymnash, etc. But in the long run, this is another very significant stone on the neck of the Russian economy, so it's especially rejoicing nothing.", - summed up the political scientist.

The FBI revealed a corrupt scheme of the Russian Federation in the United States, linked to the Clinton-The Hill Foundation

Representatives of the Russian nuclear industry engaged in bribery, kickbacks, extortion and money laundering in the United States before the Barack Obama administration approved an agreement on Russia's access to US uranium deposits in 2010.

The publication reminds that in October 2010 the State Department and state bodies at the US Foreign Investments Committee unanimously approved the partial sale of the Canadian mining company Uranium One to the Russian nuclear giant Rosatom, thereby giving Russia control over more than 20% of the US uranium stock.

And in 2011, the Obama administration granted permission to Tenex's Rosatom subsidiary for the sale of commercial uranium at US nuclear power plants in partnership with the American company Enrichment Corp.

"The Russians have compromised American nuclear contractors with kickbacks and threats that have raised national security issues, and none of these evidence has been passed before the Obama administration has made these decisions," said one US law enforcement official who worked on anonymity. this case.

In particular, one of the organizers of the corruption scheme was the Russian businessman Vadim Mykerin.

"Under this scheme, Mykerin, with the consent of senior officials of Tenex and Rosatom (Russian state-owned enterprises), offered interest-free contracts for US companies in exchange for a bribe in the form of cash payments made for some offshore bank accounts," the employee said. FBI David Hadren.
