Russia: Unidentified aircraft helping ISIS in Afghanistan

The Russian Foreign Ministry issued a statement on the flights of an unidentified aircraft which provides assistance to ISIS in Afghanistan.

The ministry drew attention to reports of regular flights of an aircraft without identification marks in various regions of Afghanistan. In particular, the reports contain information about instances where boxes with weapons and other supplies were dropped for ISIS units.

 “This naturally raises a question to the above-mentioned representatives of NATO and the United States: What do they know about the unidentified aircraft in skies over Afghanistan, the country where a U.S. and NATO military contingent has been based for more than 15 years, and the Afghan Air Force is chronically experiencing a shortage of air equipment in good repair and qualified flight personnel?” the Foreign Ministry remarked.

At the same time, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg and Director of the Defense Intelligence Agency Vincent Stewart said that they have no evidence to this effect, the Foreign Ministry reported.
