US did the same during the 80-90s against Russian troops. [/quote] Link? [/quote] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CIA_activities_in_Afghanistan https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Cyclone Why do you think US funded Talibans with hundreds millions dollars ? To tickle Russian troops ? [/quote] they didn't. the USA funded the Mujahideen, who were the enemies of the Taliban. then they funded the Northern Alliance, who were also the enemies of the Taliban! check the links you posted!!! [/quote] Wrong. The US helped create the Taliban and Al Queda along with the Saudi Kingdom as a shield against the Russians. The Saudi Kingdom and US pumped billions into Al Queda because the jihad training camps provided muslims the oppurtunity to fulfill one of the major pillars of Islam. The US was fine with this as well for military and strategic reasons, that is, until they turned on us. [/quote]
US intelligence officials assessed that Russia's military intelligence agency offered bounties to Taliban-linked militants to kill NATO troops in Afghanistan.
Interrogations of Afghan militants and criminals yielded the information indicating that Taliban-linked militants were offered bounties from Russian agents, specifically Unit 29155, a branch of Russia's GRU military intelligence agency.
Unit 29155, which is believed to be made up of former Russian special-forces troops, has been blamed for a series of assassination attempts throughout Europe, including the poisoning of Russian defector Sergei Skripal in 2018.
One theory floated by some of the officials is that Moscow may have been retaliating after an embarrassing defeat during a battle in Syria in 2018. Between 200 and 300 mercenaries from a Russia-linked security firm were killed during a four-hour battle at a military base that housed US-led coalition forces.
President Donald Trump was briefed of the intelligence assessment, but the White House has yet to respond to it.
