Russian President Vladimir Putin stated that the United States’ 20-year of operation in Afghanistan finished in “only tragedies, only losses”.

Putin has a track record of condemning Western countries for trying to levy their standards on non-Western nations.

Moscow has frequently smashed the US policy in Afghanistan, which is now in complete control by the Taliban after their complete takeover this month onward of the American departure on August 31.

The US army tried to “engrain their norms” in war-ravaged Afghanistan for two decades, which he considered as a useless exercise, stated Putin.

“The result is only tragedies, only losses for those that did it — for the US — and even more so for the people who live on Afghan territory,” he said.

It is “impossible to impose anything from outside”, he said.

Whereas, previously it was stated that Putin said Russia would not inhibit Afghanistan’s matter and that Moscow had learned from the Soviet occupation of the country.

On the contrary, he has also criticized Western countries trying to place Afghan immigrants in Moscow-allied Central Asian states.

Furthermore, Moscow has been vigilantly positive about the new leadership in Kabul, saying it would not meddle in domestic affairs.
