The President of the United States Donald trump responded to the article about the alleged secret cooperation of Russia and connected with the terrorist Taliban (banned in Russia) militants who were offered a reward to commit murder coalition forces in Afghanistan, including US forces and the UK. In the White house know nothing about it, trump wrote on his Twitter account.
“No one informed me, nor Pence, nor the chief of staff, Mark meadows about the so-called Russian attacks on our troops in Afghanistan, as reported by the “anonymous source” is fake news The New York Times,” said trump.
He added that such a statement could be made by the minions of Joe Biden, the candidate of the Democratic party of the United States in the upcoming presidential elections, who has previously urged not to invite Russia to join the G7, if the information is The New York Times about the alleged cooperation between Moscow and the Afghan militants will be truthful. In his statement, he also accused trump in that he allegedly knew about this threat for Washington’s cooperation and did not impose any sanctions for this gross violation of international law.
Trump, in turn, called corrupt politics and noted that “Russia is so outplayed him and Obama during their tenure of office that Obama wanted them out of the then “Big eight””.
Earlier, the White house also questioned the reliability of the data, according to which Moscow allegedly offered a reward fighters for killing coalition troops in Afghanistan.
On 26 June, the newspaper The New York Times, citing US intelligence agencies reported that the Russian military intelligence secretly offered to pay for the murder of American soldiers. Thus, Moscow allegedly wanted to disrupt the peace negotiations, the U.S. and the Taliban, says the publication. In Russia, accusations are called unfounded.
