The Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation denied the statements of the US State Department head Rex Tillerson, who accused Russia of supplying weapons to the Afghan Taliban.
“We once again declare that we do not provide any support to the Taliban movement,” Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova told journalists.
At the same time, the representative of the agency stressed that such accusations do not contribute to establishing normal interaction between Russia and the United States in the Afghan direction.
Earlier, US State Department head Rex Tillerson said that Russia violates international norms and norms of the UN Security Council, as it supplies weapons to the Afghan Taliban movement (the group is on the illegal groups list in Russia.)
