The difficult situation in Afghanistan. Dramatic scenes in Kabul
On Sunday, President Ashraf Ghani left the country, possibly on his way to Tajikistan. NATO forces are helping to maintain control of the Kabul airport and to coordinate the evacuation of the Afghan capital.
Thousands of people have stormed Kabul’s airport since Sunday, hoping to be able to get out of the country. However, commercial flights were suspended as the Americans and other Western countries sent their planes to Kabul to evacuate their citizens. Afghan media are showing videos showing crowds of desperate people climbing stairs to planes and trampling, even though the planes probably couldn’t take off anyway.
The American soldiers who took control of the airport several hours before opened fire on the Afghans. Although the Taliban have set up checkpoints around the airport and it is impossible to get there or leave the airport, since the morning thousands of Afghans have been pulled in this direction.
The United States has already evacuated all embassy staff in Kabul to the airport, including the ambassador. As a result, the huge building was left empty. Diplomats were also evacuated Great BritainAnd GermanyAnd FranceAnd SwedenThe Czech Republic and the United Arab Emirates. Russia also started the evacuation, which had previously reported that there was no such need. Western countries have also begun the process of evacuating Afghan translators who have worked with them in recent years.
