UNITED NATIONS, March 15. /TASS/. Russia donated to the Afghan government 10,000 Kalashnikov guns and 2.1 million cartridges in February, Russian Permanent Representative to the United Nations Vitaly Churkin said on Tuesday.
"In February, we donated weapons and munitions to Afghanistan (10,000 Kalashnikov submachine guns and 2.1 million cartridges)," he said at a meeting of the United Nations Security Council.
"We will continue our assistance to Kabul in training Afghan law enforcers," he said.
Russia, according to Churkin, is worried over growing activities of Taliban and other terrorist groups and believes that Afghanistan’s national security forces are "a guarantee of stability" in the country.
