Russia supplying Taliban as they fight US,NATO : General Curtis

WASHINGTON – AFP/UNS- Russia is “perhaps” supplying the Taliban as they fight US and NATO forces in Afghanistan, a top US general said Thursday.

General Curtis Scaparrotti, NATO s supreme allied commander who also heads the US military s European Command, told lawmakers he had seen Russian influence expand in multiple regions, including in Afghanistan.

“I have seen the influence of Russia of late — an increased influence — in terms of association and perhaps even supply to the Taliban,” Scaparrotti told the Senate Armed Services Committee, without elaborating.

NATO troops have been fighting in Afghanistan since a US-led invasion in late 2001, following the September 11 attacks.

About 13,000 NATO service members are in Afghanistan, the bulk of them American, under its Resolute Support training mission.
