‘Russian bounties for Taliban’ story clearly meant to derail US military pullout, says Moscow’s special envoy to Afghanistan

Bombshell reports claiming Russia paid Afghan militants to kill US soldiers is fake news targeting President Trump's team and its attempts to withdraw troops from the country, Russia’s top Afghanistan-focused diplomat has said.

“It is clear that there are forces in the US which don’t want to withdraw from Afghanistan, (and) want a justification for their own failures. This is what it’s all about,” Zamir Kabulov, Russia’s presidential envoy to Afghanistan, told news agency RIA Novosti.

“We really shouldn’t waste time commenting on an obvious lie,” he added.
