New Straits Times - - World -

WASHINGTON: Rus­sia is “per­haps” sup­ply­ing the Tal­iban as they fight United States and North At­lantic Treaty Or­gan­i­sa­tion (Nato) forces in Afghanistan, a top US gen­eral said on Thurs­day. Gen­eral Cur­tis Sca­parrotti, Nato’s supreme al­lied com­man­der, 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.”
