Russia on Wednesday said the situation in Afghanistan could “swiftly deteriorate” amid the withdrawal of U.S. troops, offering assistance to neighboring Tajikistan over the wave of Afghan forces fleeing the Taliban. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told Tajikistan President Emomali Rahmon that Moscow would aid the former Soviet territory if needed, according to Reuters. “We are closely watching what is happening in Afghanistan where the situation has a tendency to swiftly deteriorate, including against the backdrop of the hasty exit of American and other NATO troops,” Lavrov said. He argued that the U.S. and NATO “were unable to achieve visible results when it comes to stabilizing the situation during the decades they spent there.”
