US President Donald Trump called another news article in The New York Times stating that Russia finances militants in Afghanistan.
“another fabricated Russia Hoax, maybe by the Fake News wanting to make Republicans look bad,” wrote US President Donald Trump on Twitter. According to him, despite NYT’s allegations citing an “anonymous source,” no one reported to him, Vice President Mike Pence or White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows, about the so-called Russian attacks on American troops in Afghanistan.
The Russian Embassy has reported threats after the publication of NYT
Russian diplomats in Washington and London began to receive threats after the publication of The New York Times, which contains baseless accusations against the Russian Federation related to the situation in Afghanistan. This was reported in the press service of the Russian Embassy in the United States.
The diplomatic mission emphasized that the newspaper publishes fake stories to support the anti-Russian agenda in the absence of reasons to “blame the Russians.” Diplomats called on the competent authorities of the United States to pay attention to the situation and ensure the proper level of protection for employees of the Russian diplomatic mission. The Russian Foreign Ministry called the publication of The New York Times a fake and “unpretentious stuffing.”
The diplomatic mission said that in the absence of reasons to “blame the Russians”, the NYT is generating new fake stories. At the same time, information about cooperation between Russia and the United States on the settlement of confrontations in Afghanistan is ignored, reports The Eastern Herald.
Biden accuses Trump of betrayal to the US military
In another tweet, the US president teased a rival in the upcoming presidential election in November – Democratic candidate Joe Biden. He after the publication of NYT said that Trump had betrayed the US military.
“I find the New York Times reporting last night a terrible shock. Based on the fact that the New York Times reports are reliable, that US intelligence concluded that the Russian military unit …. offered an award to an extremist group in Afghanistan to kill our soldiers … if this article in the newspaper is true and Trump has known for months about this information … it’s beyond reason, it’s a betrayal of the most sacred service that our military is carrying out,” Biden said during a teleconference with representatives of the Latin American public, broadcast by PBS.
“I would never wish the families of these military men even in a nightmare to imagine that their president was turning a blind eye to the fact that they were offering a reward for the heads of their loved ones,” Biden added.
“It’s funny to watch a corrupt Biden read out a statement about Russia that was clearly written by his curators,” Trump wrote. According to him, during the years of the Obama and Biden administration, the United States was weak in everything, but especially in the relations with Russia. He wrote that “Russia defeated them so seriously that Obama wanted to exclude them from the then G8.”
The June 26 edition of NYT wrote that Russian military intelligence was offering rewards for attacks on US soldiers in Afghanistan. The material also indicates that the Trump administration and American intelligence services for several months can not decide what to do with this information.
The Taliban denied allegations that it allegedly received funds from Russia to carry out attacks in Afghanistan. The White House called the NYT’s note inaccurate and claims that intelligence did not report anything to Trump.
