The director of the Federal Service for Military-Technical Cooperation in Russia, Dmitry Shugaev, said that the weapons left by the Americans in Afghanistan, their total cost is estimated at about $85 billion.
“This figure represents 85 billion, it is simply terrifying,” Shugaev added, in a statement to the Russian “Zvezda” channel.
“Think of these numbers: 22,000 armored vehicles, 358,000 automatic rifles, 176 artillery vehicles, 8,000 trucks, cargo planes, more than a hundred helicopters equipped with weapons,” he said.
It should be noted that video clips documented the US military’s attempt to destroy weapons and military equipment before leaving Afghanistan at the end of last August.
There were conflicting reports about what was said about the “Taliban” movement’s control of a military arsenal worth $80 billion after the withdrawal of the US army.
