Russian intelligence chief accuses US of wanting to make Ukraine into a second Afghanistan


Sergei Naryshkin, Director of the Foreign Intelligence Service of the Russian Federation, has written an article in which he claims that American political strategists have given NATO the task of dragging out the war in Ukraine as much as possible in order to turn it into a kind of Afghanistan for Russia.

Quote from Naryshkin: "The vilest methods are used to do this, right up to sending armed militants to Ukrainian territory who are tasked with organising and supporting the so-called partisan (in fact terrorist) ‘underground’ in the country."

Details: Naryshkin notes that the United States and the vast majority of NATO countries are not ready to engage in direct armed confrontation with Russia, preferring to limit themselves to providing moral and material support to Kyiv. 

According to him, the bitterness of the "conflict" in Ukraine indicates that not only the fate of the "Kyiv regime" is at stake, but also "the architecture of the entire world order." 


"It is quite difficult to predict its specific outlines based on the current situation, but we can say with confidence that there will be no return to the old days," wrote the head of the Foreign Intelligence Service.

Naryshkin assures the public that Russia is allegedly using this war to try to prevent Ukraine from "turning into a puppet Russophobic state, which is trying to form its own identity based on the denial and demonisation of everything that naturally connects it with Russia".

"No matter how high you jump, you can't get away from yourself", Russia’s chief intelligence officer added arrogantly.

Reminders: Russia launched a full-scale war against Ukraine on 24 February, after 8 years of a hybrid war.

The United States and NATO predict a long-term Russian war in Ukraine, but the Americans do not rule out a Ukrainian victory.

The war in Afghanistan with US involvement lasted from 2001 to 2021 and is considered one of the stages of the "civil war" in Afghanistan, which began in 1978.

Recently, the propaganda news outlet RIA Novosti published a column entitled "What Russia should do with Ukraine" authored by political strategist Timofey Sergeytsev, known for the poster about the three "grades" of Ukrainians. It outlined the Kremlin's dreams of taking over Ukraine and "re-educating" Ukrainians in the territory that could fall under Russian control, but also of gaining some control over western Ukraine as well.

President of Ukraine Volodymyr Zelensky said that this article is the rationale for the genocide of Ukrainians and will constitute evidence for the future tribunal.
