Russia’s Medvedev Praises Afghans, Says NATO Promoted Afghan Heroin Exports to Russia

Dmitry Medvedev, Deputy Chairman of the Russian Security Council, wrote on his Telegram account on Nov. 11 that the Taliban had dramatically reduced Afghan drug production, whereas NATO had promoted it for export to Russia. “In less than a year, the Taliban, no matter how we may feel about it, did what the U.S.-led NATO coalition, which was allegedly fighting terrorism in the country, failed to do over a span of 20 years. That’s what happens when those who were, in fact, interested in exporting heroin to Russia and other countries leave the region,” Medvedev wrote according to TASS.
