Press review: Patrushev says Afghan fate awaits Ukraine and error cuts EU gas prices

The situation in Afghanistan will top the agenda of one of the next meetings of the Security Council, Secretary of Russia’s Security Council Nikolai Patrushev said. He emphasized that the priority task now is to ensure control over migration flows and protect the region against terrorists infiltrating it as refugees as well as against arms and drug trafficking. According to him, a similar situation is in store for those who support the US in Ukraine.

The military operation in Afghanistan was a goldmine for the US military industrial complex and those in the armed forces who were in charge of the finances for the Afghan army, in his opinion. "There are those among Americans who profited off this war, so they are not particularly worried what the world thinks about the US," he said. He noted that about $90 bln was spent on training the Afghan servicemen, while information on embezzlement is not being disclosed. Additionally, according to the security chief, the US "didn’t even bother to take out of the country a large number of weapons and military property, and just abandoned it all," while the military industrial complex and subcontractors raked in "superprofits."
