Russia begins emergency evacuation from Afghanistan after Taliban terrorists' threats

An emergency evacuation of Russian citizens from Afghanistan has begun.

The head of the Russian Ministry of Defense, Sergei Shoigu, ordered the start of an emergency evacuation of Russian citizens and citizens of the CSTO member states from Afghanistan. This is due to the Taliban's threats to start mass arrests of all foreign citizens who are illegally in the country, and in case of resistance, open fire to kill.

At the moment, the information and news agency has information that by August 31, it is planned to evacuate about 500 Russian citizens and citizens of the CSTO countries from Afghanistan. At the same time, in order to meet the deadlines set by the Taliban, the Russian Defense Ministry will allocate four Il-76 aircraft.

Given the ongoing evacuation, experts believe that further negotiations with Taliban terrorists (a terrorist movement banned in Russia - ed.) Are no longer possible, although no direct threats to Russia from the Taliban have yet been received.

Earlier, the Russian side stated that there was no need for an emergency evacuation of Russian citizens from Afghanistan.

Even the Macedonian could not cope with them, but here the Yankees are funny.
