The reports that Russia paid representatives banned in Russia as extremist movement “the Taliban” for attacking American soldiers in Afghanistan are false. Thus reacted to the data about the collusion by the press Secretary of the Russian President Dmitry Peskov, reports “Interfax”.
A Kremlin spokesman suggested to focus on the statement of the American leader is Donald trump, who has already assessed the publication, The New York Times.
The US President said earlier that he was not provided information about the attack on the military from the Russian troops. “Maybe this is another hoax associated with Russia, maybe with the help of fake news the New York Times wants to put the Republicans in a bad light,” said trump.
The New York Times on June 26, 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.
