Militants of the radical Taliban movement (banned in Russia) killed dozens of civilians in the Afghan provinces of Spin Boldak and Kandahar. This was reported by the US Embassy in Kabul in Twitter…
The American side accused the Taliban of reprisals against the civilian population of Afghanistan. The diplomatic mission called on to investigate war crimes against Afghans and bring to justice all representatives of the movement involved in these incidents.
“The Taliban leadership must be held accountable for the crimes of their militants. If you cannot control your fighters now, you have nothing to do later in the office, ”the American diplomats said.
Earlier, Afghan President Ashraf Ghani accused Washington of too abrupt withdrawal of troops from the country, which led to an aggravation of the military conflict. “The reason for the current state of affairs is that the decision was taken suddenly,” he said in a speech to parliament.
The situation in Afghanistan escalated after the US and NATO countries began an official withdrawal of troops from Afghan territories on May 1. The Taliban began to seize vast territories in the country and soon announced that they controlled more than 90 percent of the state borders.
