Russia denies paying Afghan militants to kill US troops

Jun 28, 2020 15:04 IST

Russia has rejected as "baseless" the US accusations that it offered Taliban-linked militants rewards to kill US and other Nato troops in Afghanistan. The New York Times and Washington Post cited US officials as saying a Russian military intelligence unit linked to assassination attempts in Europe had offered the alleged bounties last year. The Russian embassy in the US said the claims had led to threats to diplomats. The Taliban also denied there was any such deal with Russian intelligence.
