Afghan president Ghani escaped from Afghanistan with four cars were filled with money, as they tried to shove another part of the money into a helicopter, but not everything fit, so some of the money was left lying on the tarmac.
Media reports suggested that the president went to the neighboring Tajikistan or Uzbekistan, but there was no official confirmation of his whereabouts.
Kremlin envoy on Afghanistan Zamir Kabulov on Monday described Ghani’s flight from Kabul as “disgraceful,” adding that Ghani “deserves to be brought to justice and held accountable by the Afghan people.
Moscow’s criticism of Ghani, whose government had the support of Washington, comes at a time of heightened tensions between Russia and the United States.
Russia has hosted several rounds of talks on Afghanistan, most recently in March, that involved the Taliban — even though Russia has labeled them a terrorist organization.
President Joe Biden announced Saturday afternoon he would deploy roughly 5,000 US troops to Afghanistan amid a rapid Taliban take back of major Afghan cities.
The Taliban’s lightning-quick BLITZKRIEG advance has resulted in a takeover of half of the country’s 34 provincial capitals, and more than two-thirds of the country entirely.
Biden was the “fourth president to preside over an American occupation troop presence in Afghanistan,” and would not pass the war on to a fifth, leaving the dirty work to the CIA?
