Russian Envoy Vitaly Churkin today issued a complaint on behalf of the Collective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO), a Russian-led military alliance, calling on NATO to stop driving militants out of southern Afghanistan into the north.
According to Churkin, a number of members of the CSTO in the region, many of whom are based along the northern Afghan frontier, are concerned that the instability NATO is causing is spreading into their nations.
Indeed when NATO began its occupation in 2001, northern Afghanistan was almost exclusively on their side, as NATO entered into an already existing civil war on the side of the Northern Alliance faction. After over nine years of NATO failing to destroy the insurgency, however, the Taliban has added to its sphere of influence and now has a growing presence across the northern border.
Churkin also addressed Afghan government complaints about Russia’s role in anti-drug operations in the country, which NATO apparently included Russia in without asking the Karzai government beforehand. Churkin insisted Russia’s involvement was long overdue and would continue.

Mr. Churkin was not informed that Nazi Anglo-American Terrorist Organization has same final goal as Mr. Hitler did, destruction of Russia and theft of her resources.
This blame game will continue and the Afghans will die, neither Russians nor the NATO is friendly and they are working for their aganda. In one approach both are the same i.e. gegen Muslims and Islam and both are killers of innocent Muslims.
