Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova has stated that Moscow had never delivered weapons to the Taliban, APA reports citing Sputnik.

The statement comes shortly after Russian Foreign Ministry spokesman Zamir Kabulov underscored that there is no evidence related to claims about Moscow’s “collusion” with the Taliban, and that there are only groundless accusations against Russia on the matter.

"Russia only supplied arms to the legitimate government of Afghanistan, something that is perfectly well known”, Zakharova said on Thursday, commenting on a recent statement by US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo who accused Russia of “selling small arms to Afghanistan for ten years”, which he said “puts American lives at risk”.
