US Intel Rejects “Russia Bounties Plot” Claims in Afghanistan

Monday 29 June 2020

WASHINGTON (TASS) — The US Intelligence Service have refuted media accusations that Russia offered money to militants in Afghanistan to kill American troops, US President Donald Trump commented on his Twitter account on Monday.

The New York Times published a report earlier in the month stating that an unidentified unit of Russia’s military intelligence had secretly incited Taliban militants to attack servicemen of the international coalition in Afghanistan.

According to the NY Times report, the intelligence findings were submitted to Trump several months ago. “Intel just reported to me that they did not find this info credible, and therefore did not report it to me or the Vice President”, Trump tweeted. “Possibly another fabricated Russia Hoax, maybe by the Fake News New York Times Books, wanting to make Republicans look bad.”
