ΑΦΓΑΝΙΣΤΑΝ | Ρωσική αποκάλυψη – Τα ελικόπτερα των Ταλιμπάν – (25.8.2021)[Eng subs]admin
A revelation about the Taliban helicopters was made by the Guardian news website, using information from the Interfax news agency and statements made to it by the Russian head of the state arms export company Rosoboronexport, Alexander Mikheev, who said the Taliban currently own more than 100 Russian-made Mi-17 military helicopters, a fairly large fleet. These are transport helicopters that the US had promoted to the Afghan government instead of the Black Hawk, as they were cheaper and easier to use. Unbelievable? And yet true. Strange as it may seem, the US, according to the Guardian, had bought the helicopters from Russia and given them to the Afghans. Helicopters, which the Americans say were not more than 56 and only 32 of them were used, which, as we have seen, is denied by the Russian head, who at the same time tries to reassure, as he supports helicopters need maintenance, repairs, spare parts and that is why he believes that most are already grounded. However, in reality no one knows how many of the Russian helicopters are currently in the hands of the Taliban and especially how many can fly. These are the results of a wrong and unplanned US government decision to leave Afghanistan in a hurry. That is why the White House is being attacked from all. From Republicans, Democrats, former President Donald Trump but mostly from US people.
