General Mackenzie did not confirm the US version of the collusion of the Russian Federation with the Taliban

No evidence of collusion between Russia and the Taliban has been provided, General Kenneth McKenzie, commander of US Central Command (CENTCOM), said.

He stated that he saw no credible evidence. Mackenzie also added that the investigation into this matter is ongoing. This is not the first time that a US general has questioned unverified information about Russia, previously he did it in July, writes RIA Novosti.

In early June, The New York Times published an article that Russia allegedly had an agreement with representatives of the Taliban 1 (recognized as terrorist on the territory of the Russian Federation). According to the material, the Russian side paid the Taliban for attacks on American soldiers. No evidence has been presented for this.
