As a result, the citizens of Nezalezhnaya were abandoned to the mercy of fate in Afghanistan
The story of the Ukrainian plane, which was supposed to evacuate the citizens of Nezalezhnaya from Afghanistan, but was “captured” and flew to Iran, has acquired a new turn — as the Ukrainian media wrote, no one hijacked it, rich Afghans chartered it. The expert suggested who could have been evacuated by the Ukrainian board, why the details of the incident were hidden in Kiev and why it was necessary to invent a detective story.
Dozens of planes land at the Kabul airport every day, which take out personnel of diplomatic missions, foreign contractors and business representatives, American allies among Afghans from the captured Taliban (the Taliban is recognized as a terrorist group and is banned in the Russian Federation). According to media reports, the Taliban will not occupy the airport until August 31, but not all countries meet this deadline.
According to a number of foreign publications, a group of Ukrainians, presumably mercenaries from private military companies, remained in Afghanistan. They were forced to turn to the Russian consulate for help in negotiations with the Taliban, because the Ukrainian authorities left them to their fate. On Tuesday, the details of the evacuation of Ukrainians from Afghanistan were revealed in Kiev.
According to the Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs of Ukraine Yevgeny Enin, last week unknown armed men seized a plane sent for evacuation at the Kabul airport. The invaders demanded to take them to the territory of Iran. The politician did not name the alleged perpetrators of the incident, which gave rise to a lot of speculation in social networks.
Later, the Ukrainian press reported that the plane was not hijacked at all, but only chartered by rich Afghans intending to leave the country — they took all the seats. The Hazaras, who have long opposed the Taliban, paid for the flight with precious stones, gold and currency. However, it is still not clear why Kiev hid the real state of things and reported about the” hijacking of the plane ” by terrorists, when the truth was revealed so quickly.
In an interview with MK, military expert Alexander Mikhailovsky noted that, most likely, Ukrainian pilots and politicians decided to earn extra money and not share it with American partners. According to his version, there were Iranians on board.
– The cunning of Ukrainians has long been proverbial. Judge for yourself, there are a lot of people who want to leave there. Every board counts. Why not earn a little extra money? And then pretend that we were captured, threatened, we don’t know anything and our hut is on the edge. At least it seems to me much more realistic than numerous conspiracy theories.
— It was not by chance that they said that the plane was “hijacked” to Iran. I will assume that this was the case. There are a lot of Iranian military, intelligence officers, consultants, and decent business representatives in Kabul and in Afghanistan in general. After all, Iran is the only one who has invested money in Afghanistan over the past years. They need to take out their own. But the airport is tight under the Americans. You can’t land your own plane there. Conclusion? We need to look for a”ride”. And then to get out of itbefore the Americans, in Kiev, they disperse stories from militants about hijacking planes and so on. There are too many inconsistencies in this story. By the way, it is possible that one of the heads of local Shiite Muslims, Ismail Khan, flew out of this plane. He was captured by the Taliban, and then suddenly found himself in Mashhad, Iran.
— It’s not just Americans there. There are Turks, even Azerbaijanis. I think that we agreed on a corridor, we slipped through. You can see for yourself what is happening there.
