Statement of the American General was made during the visit of the Pentagon chief James Mattis, who visited us troops in Afghanistan, says Reuters.
Nicholson has repeatedly talked about the “evil influence” of Russia on the situation in Afghanistan. In February, he said that Moscow is actively trying to legitimize the radical Islamist movement “Taliban”, claiming that it helps in the fight against the terrorist group “Islamic state” (IG).
