The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, in her Telegram channel responded with a paraphrased quote from the Russian poet Alexander Pushkin to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, who promised not to forget about those who did not have time to leave Afghanistan.

“It seems to me that they will not forget him and his wonderful organization either. Never. To paraphrase Pushkin, the dirtiest meanness is the dirtiest example, ” the diplomat wrote, commenting on the words of the head of the alliance.

Earlier, Maria Zakharova said that NATO is a “destructive” structure. According to the diplomat, the military-political bloc should not claim “a place in ensuring international security”. “The Alliance has lost its orientation in space and control even over itself,” she stressed.

August 15, militants of the Taliban movement (a terrorist organization banned in Russia)They entered Kabul and declared full control over the territory of Afghanistan. They also announced that they will soon proclaim the creation of the Islamic Emirate of Afghanistan. Hundreds of people wanted to leave the country and rushed to the airport, which caused a stampede.
