Russia Slams Reports On Bounties For Taliban As 'Lies'

Moscow says reports on Russia paying Taliban to kill Western soldiers 'blatant lies'

Russia's presidential envoy for Afghanistan Zamir Kabulov on Monday slammed reports claiming Russian intelligence officers paid Taliban-linked militants to kill Western forces in Afghanistan.
"Too much hype is being created around an outright fake news, which even Trump and his administration have denied. I consider it disgraceful for us to spend too much time commenting on blatant lies. It is clear that there are forces in the United States that do not want to leave Afghanistan, who want to justify their own failure. That's what it's all about," Kabulov said.
On Friday, The New York Times reported "ing anonymous sources that a Russian military intelligence unit secretly offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants for killing coalition forces in the war-torn country, including American troops.
The report claimed that President Donald Trump and the White House National Security Council (NSC) gathered in late March to discuss the matter and weighed several responses, including a diplomatic complaint to Moscow demanding an end to the practice and escalating a series of sanctions.
Trump denied on Twitter being briefed "about the so-called attacks on our troops in Afghanistan by Russians, as reported through an 'anonymous source' by the Fake News @nytimes", adding that "nobody's been tougher on Russia than the Trump Administration".
He also accused his rival in the presidential election, Joe Biden as being behind the publication, saying a statement on Russia was "obviously written by his handlers".
Meanwhile, the Russian Embassy in the US said "baseless and anonymous accusations" led to direct threats to the life of employees of the Russian Embassies in Washington D.C. and London. -
