This is the first cargo sent by Moscow to that country after the Taliban’s takeover and, according to Russian Ambassador to Afghanistan Dmitry Zhirnov, two additional shipments will be later delivered, bringing the total volume of Russian aid to more than 100 tons.

In an interview published this Thursday, the Russian representative in Kabul explained that the shipments are prepared by the Ministry of Emergencies and include medicines and essential goods.

According to Zhirnov, Afghan authorities assured that the aid would be distributed among those in need. He stressed that the Taliban movement understands that if inconsistencies in the distribution are reported, “this will seriously complicate the ongoing work with foreign donors.”

The diplomat explained that on his return from Kabul, these military planes will move Russian citizens to this country, in addition to about 900 Afghan students accepted for studying at universities and prolong the full-time education.
