Russia has once again evacuated about 200 people from Afghanistan by military flights. The Russian Defense Ministry said in Moscow that Russian, Kyrgyz and Afghan students were enrolled in Russian universities.
Russia’s Defense Ministry said on Saturday that three IL-76s flying from Kabul airport had landed at the Chekalovsky military airport on the outskirts of Moscow.
The Russian military says it has evacuated 770 people from Afghanistan since late August.
It is said that this time too, Russian planes first transported 36 tons of humanitarian aid to Afghanistan and evacuated people on their way back.
Since the rise of the extremist Taliban in Afghanistan, the situation has become catastrophic for many Afghans. Most international aid to Afghanistan has been suspended and the central bank reserves have been frozen.
